News from Brandon...
With work very busy across the local I would like to take a minute to discuss some items to think about for the upcoming months. Some areas are up for contract negotiations and some areas will see wage allocations this spring. Each of these areas may have a specific need or an issue that some members have brought up at the quarterly union meetings or by calling John or myself.
I ask that each member review the contract for your area a few months prior to contract opening or allocation of increases. We all work toward that retirement date someday but we also have to provide for ourselves/family until that date. Negotiating for the best possible working conditions and benefit requires your input and support. EVERY member has a voice in these conditions and benefits. We take all issues to the negotiating committee to review as they work on the negotiation items. A few items brought up recently are adding the VEBA medical benefit, removing/adding a vacation savings account, and extending contract length. Please let John, myself, your local E-Board member, or come out to the meeting this month and let us know.
Fraternally, Brandon Leatham
