Brothers and Sisters:


     We ended the week with good quality negotiations on the economic packages. Still a ways to go, but making progress in a positive way. Tough times with the pandemic issues as far as our daily meetings, but we are holding steady and standing strong amongst the incoming voters as we sit in a poll location with hundreds of people in the mix. Our International Rep has left for the week. He has left us with great words of advice and has helped our cause in great strides. We will have him in our corner to finish off negotiating this contract and getting our Local a contract that we would all be happy with. More to come as we roll into next week with the company up next! 

    Thanks for your support! We all stand together and that’s what makes this Union great!

Brothers and Sisters:


     We have completed 9 days into negotiations. We have worked hard in bargaining with the company for a great contract. We are close to wrapping things up with some of the more difficult items to barter. We predict to be done this week with a couple days of voting including all day sessions of explaining what new changes have come about in our contract. We hope to see each and everyone of you there to answer your questions and get your vote.


     We are strong in numbers, please try to make a session and get your vote in. Details to come as far as locations. Thanks again!

Brothers and Sisters:


     Good evening, I hope everyone has a safe weekend, and enjoy the weather we have been graciously given. We wrapped up two (2) days of discussions, and voting on our 2020-2023 contract. We were successful in the ratification with 82% of the votes were yes and 18% of the votes were no. A special thanks to the committee (Josh Deacon, Joe Early, Craig Evans, and Wes Waddle) and the tellers (Alex Vibbert and Chris Hinkle) for their hard work.

     Don't forget some of these important dates, sick days and vacation will start January 1, 2021. Wage increase will be retroactive to November 2, 2020. Parental leave starts November 11, 2020, and the short term sick drops in July 1, 2021.

Good morning all.


     Some highlights of the contract we acquired in negotiations are as follows:


•. We acquired the parental and vacation that was given to the company earlier this year.
•. We were able to obtain three (3) new sick days along with 25 additional short term sick days added to your bank for a total of 125 days.
•. Also a 2-1/2% wage increase.


     There will be a more thorough explanation, question, and answer sessions today and tomorrow. We hope to see everyone there and appreciate the vote!


Thank you,

Joel Saulman
