Bargaining Update 7.2.15

Your Bargaining Team met with the Company today to exchange proposals and information requests. The company presented the Union with an amendment to the same-sex domestic partner provision of their comprehensive MOU. Federal law now allows for the legal marriage of same sex domestic partners. The Union presented the company with an in depth information request regarding their Healthcare costs and utilization presentation. The company is the master of charts and graphs but often mixes apples and oranges. We continue to group its fruits to break down in plain language how this affects our pockets. If we are to believe the picture the company paints you would believe the sky is falling.

Bargaining Update 7.1.15

Your Bargaining Team met with the Company today to exchange proposals and information requests. The Union presented proposals for increases to the Pension plan and the 401(k) plan. It is unconscionable for this company to not provide pension increases for the many years of dedicated service that our members have given. Regardless of the endless rules that are put upon the membership we continue to put the customer first. It is hard to believe sometimes that the company does the same. 

Bargaining Update 6.30.15

The Union had off table discussions with the company throughout the day regarding local issues. We are reviewing information from yesterday’s meeting and compiling information requests to better formulate demands.

Financial information requests concerning our overall compensation package and payroll costs are being devised to get a better understanding of the company’s expenditures attributed to our members, both Active and Retired. We demand a fair and equitable contract for all.

 

 

Bargaining Update- June 29, 2015

The Union met with the Company today to present several demands addressing stress in the workplace, technological changes that directly affect our members and safety.

Stress in the workplace has been driven to an all-time high and cannot be allowed to continue. Stress drives up high utilization of healthcare, absenteeism and the core issues the company throws back at us in bargaining through endless charts and graphs it generates.

Information requests addressing transfers and profit sharing were presented today by the UnionA side by side comparison provided by the Company demonstrated significant cost increases to active and retiree healthcare

Active’s healthcare has been under attack and now Retiree healthcare is the villain to the company. Apparently our retirees past contributions have meant little to this corporation. We will continue to fight at the bargaining table. Continue to make your voices heard in the workplace, continue the pickets.

Your Bargaining Committee reminds you to Work Safe-Be Strong- Stay United
