IAM-Jacobs TOSC Negotiations

Sisters and Brothers

Your Union Committee and the company met again today. Modest progress is being made, but it is just a slow process. We continue to talk about job classifications and the one thing that is near and dear to all Union members; "SENIORITY". As you all know, SENIORITY has tentacle's that spread out in all areas of a contract. Your Union Committee will continue to meet with the company in efforts to secure the best possible contract that we can present to the members for a vote. We will meet again with the company on Monday and continue to work on the non-economic portion of the contract.

In Solidarity
Your Union Committee

Sisters and Brothers,

Your committee met with the company this morning. There was modest movement from both sides on non-economic proposals.
Tomorrow your committee will again meet with the company committee and hopefully will resolve more non-economic issues.
Your committee is working hard to secure the best possible contract  for the membership to vote on.
Stay tuned for tomorrow's update.

In Solidarity

Brothers and sisters,

Your leadership of Local Lodge 2061 would like every member to contact their Congressmen and let them know how you were affected by the recent government shutdown. Please remind them that you were furloughed through no fault of your own and that being out almost 3 weeks without pay has created a huge finanicial hardship on you and your family. Tell them you hope they are in favor of back pay for all affected KSC workers.

    Rally to Protest Government Shutdown Today at 4:30PM. in Viera

    There will be a rally sponsored by the AFL-CIO to protest the "Government Shutdown" that will take place in Viera, near the Courthouse facilities, today at 5pm. Congressman Posey's office will be picketed beginning at 430 pm.  Please come out and support the event, as the only way the Shutdown will end is if WE pressure the politicians who are responsible for it.
