Fighting today..Focused on the Future!
This morning, our Committee met with the Company and tentative agreements were reached on Article 4 (Responsible Company Union Relationship) and Appendix A5 (Commercial Driver’s License/Special Operating Permit/License). The company also passed proposals on Appendix B (Wage Zones) and (Wage Zones and Locations), as well as two Letters outside the CBA on the Voluntary Extended Absence Program and Regarding Union Deductions.
The Union passed counter proposals on Article 29 (Termination and Validity of Agreement), Article 23 (Vacations), Article 22 (Excused Work Days), and a proposal to eliminate Appendix F and move those members into the core agreement.
This afternoon, the Leveraged Title Committee met with the company again where they discussed a number of issues including work rules, monitoring, unjust discipline, targets, job security and the Customer Service Response Team.
