In our most recent bargaining session, the employer met our team with little movement on multiple important issues. We have an update in our table below to highlight the positions of both the union and the employer.
To this date, the employer has violated Federal Law and committed multiple Unfair Labor Practices (ULPs). The employer first committed a ULP when unilaterally taking away our overtime pay and changing clock in/out practices in March 2023. Most recently, the employer refuses to bargain over mandatory subjects of bargaining that our members care about, such as: Paid Time Off, Fair Process to Fill Vacant Positions, a Fair Discipline Process, Employer and Union Rights. The employer’s violation of federal law must stop immediately, and the employer needs to bargain in good faith.
ATTEND A BARGAINING SESSION
The best way to get our needs across the table is to have you, our members, show up at one or more of our future bargaining sessions. If you can’t make the entire session, then stay for an hour or so. Your presence is critically important.
