Tape Release Thursday, February 7, 2013
Tuesday, February 12th is a Union Activity Day due to the scheduled membership meetings as follows:
8:30am, 10am, 2pm, at the Union Hall, 1451 Lake Ave.
5:30pm Rick’s Prime Rib, 898 Buffalo Rd.
On the Agenda:
Nomination and Election of Delegates to CWA National Convention
CWA Retirement Plan
Good and Welfare
The CWA Local 1170 Team Performance Bonus will be payable in March. At this time, the Company still has to present to the Union the performance metrics. It is anticipated that we will receive the minimum payout of 4.5% at no fault of you, the members. It’s better than a sharp stick in the eye. You have been emailed information to defer your bonus into your 401K Plan. The selection to do so must be done by February 28th. If you are interested and don’t know how to do so, please call the office and we will assist you.
The United Way Leadership Breakfast is scheduled for next Wednesday at the Radisson Hotel, Downtown Rochester at 8am. Notification has been emailed to the Company with the list of members invited to attend. I want to thank the entire Membership for your annual contributions to the United Way. You’re recognized throughout the community every year as being some of the most generous givers in this community. It says a lot about the quality of people that you are. Once again, Bill Netchke and Fritz Amrhein will be coordinating our campaign.
Lastly, we have lost another retiree:
Robert Abbey passed on February 4th. Robert, formerly of Lima, lived in North Carolina. He retired in 1985 as a Switch Tech after a 39-year career. Our sympathies go out to Robert’s family and friends.
This is your President John Pusloskie thanking you for calling your Union Tape, the place where we fight for the respect you deserve.
