Tape Release Monday August 29, 2016
Last week in the Sales and Service tech title the Company rolled out a new program to achieve 100% commitments that wasn’t presented to your Union. We immediately sent a demand to negotiate and cease and desist as we already have a negotiated program and any changes must be bargained. We will be meeting with the Company today and will provide updates as we get new information.
This Wednesday we’re scheduled to meet with the Company to bargain over the effects of the M6 conversion and its impact on the bargaining unit. Updates will be quickly communicated out to the field.
The Union has provided notification to the Company that Labor Day is an official Union activity day. The Company cannot mandate overtime on Labor Day.
Your Union will be marching on Monday September 5th in the Rochester Annual Labor day parade. The tape will be updated on Friday with our meeting time and location. We will have discounted tickets to Seabreeze which include all rides and picnic for $15 each available to members, retirees, and their families who march.
Clambake tickets are now available at the Union Hall. This years event will be held on Sunday September 25th. Members, retirees, and spouses are $20 each all others will be $55. Tickets will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
This is your President John Pusloskie, thanking you for calling your Union tape the place where were Union and proud of it.
