Your negotiating committee met with management on Tuesday and Thursday. Management is still not budging on their proposals on mutual aid and their giveback demands to eliminate our job security and No Layoffs protections.
We are going to have to turn up the heat until they get the message that we are essential, not disposable.
After ten days of negotiations, including three days this week, we are far from reaching a tentative agreement with Management.
The contract has not been renegotiated for six years, so there is a lot of language updating needed. While a number of relatively minor issues have been resolved, major economic issues like wages and insurance costs are still not even on the table.
LOCAL 96: SHOWING UNITY ON THE JOB
This week, Local 96 Teamsters are proudly wearing their FAIR CONTRACT buttons and showing unity and support for a fair contract while out on the job, in the parking lot, and in the stations. Lets stay strong and fight as one for the contract we deserve!
On Monday, 4/19, come to your station to pick up a button. Remember to wear the FAIR CONTRACT button all day on Tuesday and attend the membership meeting at 6pm.
Instructions for pickup at each station below. Contact your shop steward or Contact Action Team member for more information.
Your Contract Negotiating Committee has met with management three times. Read the latest contract update on the proposals we've presented to management and the 18 proposals the company has responded with. Share this information with other Teamsters and be ready to act together to win the contract we deserve.
Contract negotiations began today, and the Bargaining Committee is taking your issues to the bargaining table.
More than 400 members filled out our Teamster Contract Survey in just one week. The results show that members are united on our priorities for a fair contract, including: Wage Increases, Job Security, and Healthcare.
