A secret ballot & stamped self-addressed envelope has been mailed out to each member’s home for the formal PFL Program vote, similar to the election ballots. The ballots are due back by June 9th in order for the President and Unit Chairs to open them and count them at the June E-Board meeting. The office sent an email to all members advising them of this process along with the websites to view in order to make an educated decision on whether to vote to keep this program or to discontinue it.
It is not too late to turn in your Contract Negotiation 2022 Talking Points to your Shop Steward for consideration. The items of interest most mentioned in the handouts that we received back were 457 matches by the company, having a vision plan for family members, job description updates, essential worker pay, and a raise in the per diem rates. These sheets will be a valuable tool for negotiating with the company.
