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.
