Tape Release Tuesday February 28, 2017
In order to dispel the rumors in the field, to be clear your yearly bonus will be paid out in March, it’s as good as gold in the bank. I’m waiting for confirmation from the Company but expect it to be paid on March 16th.
Another rumor circulating is the Company will be offering a buyout, again your Union has had no conversations with the Company in regards to this. In fact we haven’t heard from the Company on much lately.
We have an MOA with the Company whereby the Company must provide 16 hours of classroom training twice per year to those interested in studying for the AC/DC test. As a result of a recent grievance the Company is polling right now. If you haven’t received the email requesting your response, I would recommend that you notify your supervisor of your interest asap.
Saturday March 4th from 9am to Noon the Rochester Labor Council will be holding its annual meeting at the RIT Inn and conference center. The meeting is open to all Union members.
Stewards training scheduled for March 11th is going to be rescheduled due to the City of Rochester’s annual ST. Patricks day parade. Access to our meeting location was limited by the parade. We will be rescheduling in a couple of weeks.
Thursday March 16th a mobilizers meeting has been called for. Notices will be going out in the mail tomorrow. The meeting is scheduled for 5 pm at the RIT Inn and conference center.
This is your President John Pusloskie, thanking you for calling your Union tape, the place where were Union and proud of it.
