The Company passed a proposal to carry forward:

  • Article 8 –Non-Discrimination
  • Article 22 – Vacation – rejecting the Union proposal to increase vacation time
  • Article 23 – Holidays

Change language to the following:

  • Article 4 – Authorized Union Representatives – 3(b) Union Business 150 days to 120
  • Article 6 – Union Activities – eliminate paragraph 5 – language we won in 2015 bargaining
  • Article 7 – Agency Shop And Collection of Dues 7.2.(a)
  • Exhibit 1 – Payroll Deduction Authorization – using ATTUID
  • Article 12 – Discipline - Arbitration rights for new hires from 9 months to 12 months for eligibility
  • Article 13 – Personnel Records – from 30 calendar days to 30 business days for inspecting your file

Remember, the company’s net profit in 2017 was $29.3 billion. That equates to $80,273,972 a day, including holidays (that’s like you winning the Powerball every day of the year).

We will continue to work towards a fair and just contract for all.

In Unity,
Your Bargaining Committee
