And any good and welfare
The Union held an orientation with 5 new Desk Techs this week. As part of the new CBA reached last year the Company still has to fill 22 more Desk Tech positions.
Update on the Pollings:
Sales and Service: We’ve been advised that the Company intends to have the transfers polled for and the new hires on board by mid February.
Network Tech transfers are targeted for mid February as well.
Desk Tech Pollings: 7 members have expressed interest and were still waiting for the Company to respond.
The Union has also brought forth issues concerning employee safety in regards to lack of notification where gunmen or other highly dangerous situations are ongoing. It is unacceptable to us that we can’t get a notification to our employees in a timely fashion. The Company has responded and is working on a policy. The Union will also be working on its own plan to communicate to the members as well.
This is your President John Pusloskie Thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where we value families, freedom and fairness.
