IAM-Jacobs contract vote

Sisters and Brothers

Your Union Negotiating Committee will be prepared to present the company's Last, Best and Final offer from the company that was presented to your Union Committee on Sunday, January 12, 2014. The proposal will be presented beginning at 10 am on Saturday, January 18, 2014. A question and answer period will take place after the presentation followed by a vote  for acceptance or rejection of the LBAF offer. A strike vote will also take place at this meeting.

We urge all members to attend so you can see first hand what's in the complete package. This is a collective agreement so it is imperative that everyone votes. Don't stay away and let others determine your future. We're all in this together.

If you haven't already signed a membership application, you'll have the opportunity to do so before the 10 am meeting begins. Absolutely no one will be permitted into the meeting if they haven't signed a membership application.

Hope to see everyone on Saturday

IAM-Jacobs TOSC negotiations

Sisters and Brothers

This Sunday morning the Company met with your Union negotiation committee and the company passed across its last, best  and final offer for our members to vote. Your committee is now in the process of going through this proposed package. Wage concessions stand out and equate to a  17% cut if you are at the current maximum rate of the respective classification. A positive to this package was overtime paid after 8 hours, layoff and recall by seniority and introduction to the IAM Pension plan.

Your Union committee will present the company's LBAF proposal  for vote at the Union Hall on Saturday, January 25, 2014. Your committee will finalize the time of vote during the upcoming week and notices will be posted on this blog and the shop bulletin boards.

This has been a long enduring process and at this time your committee would like to thank all of you  for your continued support.
