Your Bargaining Team did meet with the Company on Aug 8th, but has not been back to the table today. The union passed more proposals to the company dealing with safety, benefits, wages, and surplus issues. We also continued to have discussions around the one-person bore issue. The company rejected several of the union proposals, with no counters or new proposals.
We are now discussing strategies and other potential proposals and awaiting the company’s call to meet again.
As you are aware, the contract expired at midnight Saturday. Contact your Local for more details and information regarding working during an expired collective bargaining agreement.
Please check the website periodically throughout the day for further updates, as well as the Utility Operations Facebook page.
Work safely and continue your mobilization efforts! The mobilization efforts over our entire district have not gone unnoticed. District 3’s Mobilization has never been stronger.
