The Unions and employers have worked out a solution to one of the pension funding issues holding up negotiations. This important development will strengthen our pension plan by increasing the employer contribution rate in reasonable amounts over the next several years. Proper funding of the pension to improve the funding status will continue to be a necessary part of any overall settlement.
Additional negotiations have been scheduled to address all of the important issues affecting our members. These negotiations will be an uphill battle, so it is critical for members to stay united and support your Union.
Please make sure your contact information is up to date with the Union so we can keep you informed as developments occur. Ignore the rumor mill and contact your District Union Representative if you have any questions.
Together, we will prove, once again, Solidarity Works!
