Tape release Wednesday, October 10, 2012
Members have until the end of business today to submit their request to volunteer to take the enhanced severance package as a result of the recently declared force reductions. The Union will be meeting with the Company tomorrow morning to confirm the volunteers and assess who may be impacted.
Discussions have been held with the Company and they are steadfast in their position that the uncapped severance doesn’t apply to the Facility Coordinators in this situation when they have eliminated their work. The Union has expressed our position and disagree with the Company on this major issue.
I will update the tape with important announcements as they develop.
A reminder - investment advisor Bill Ochocinski will be holding an informational meeting this Thursday at the Union Hall in regards to the CWA Local 1170 Retirement Plan. The meeting will start at 6pm, spouses are welcome.
Tomorrow is a wear Red day.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
