IAM-Jacobs TOSC Negotiations

Sisters and Brothers

Your Union committee  continued negotiations with the company this week. Modest movement was made during the week's sessions but the Company has not made any movement on seniority, layoff and recall language, which is very important to our members. Those topics are being moved into the Economics portion of the negotiations. Your Union committee will resume negotiations with the company on December 2nd where we will begin Economics. 
 Your Union Committee is calling for  a special membership meeting at the Union Hall on Tues. Nov 26 at @ 4:00 pm. Contract issues will be discussed at this meeting. We understand that this is a holiday week but we also feel it is very important that all members understand the importance of where the negotiation process is at this time.
In Solidarity
