Bargaining Update


Siemens Bargaining

Members of IUE-CWA Local 84765 who work at Siemens are mobilizing for a fair contract. They refused to participate in a company-sponsored Labor Day cookout and instead took their scheduled lunches and returned to work thirty minutes later after the company offered to extend their lunch period. Management has proposed replacing their current health care plan with an unaffordable, high-deductible plan. They told the company: we don't want hot dogs and hamburgers – we want affordable healthcare!
