Tape Release Friday, June 1, 2012
Yesterday was the last day of work for the following members who volunteered to leave due to the recently declared surplus. I want to thank each of them for their years of service and membership to their Union. It is with great appreciation for your hard work and commitment to your craft that I wish you the best in your retirement.
Bruce Coleman CO Installer 10/31/66 45 Years of Svc
Bob Snow Carrier Tech 9/19/94 17 Years of Svc
Kevin Perkowski Sales/Svc Tech 4/29/96 16 Years of Svc
The last position vacated was by Sales/Svc Tech Jim Lynch. Jim has been offered and accepted the Cable Splicing Supervisor’s position. Nobody is being laid off.
This week, the Company notified your Union that they are changing the payout formula for the Take the Lead Bonus in December. The bonus will be based on annualized revenue vs. total revenue as it has been for the past several years. The affect of this change for you will be a bonus that will be ½ of what it once was. Another example of where the Company places its values.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union Tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
