Dear Members of Local 1621,
As some of you may know, the Production Workers Agreement is up September 30th of this year. I have sent out multiple messages and have talked about it in our Regular Union Meeting meetings. We have not received very many responses with your wants and needs through the surveys. So, if you are a Production worker, please reach out to me and let me know what you want in your agreement. We have gotten Strike Sanctions approved at the Building Trades and will be ready to Strike if negotiations take us that way.
I would like to wish all the fathers out there a Happy Father’s Day long weekend and to enjoy your Monday off with your families. In our agreement Monday is a Designated Day Off.
