The kickoff for District 3 Mobility Bargaining is Monday, March 29, 2010. This bargaining will cover 12, 000 plus employees in our nine state area.

We will continue the battle from the “Orange Table” bargaining which took place last year. Your team will work for stronger language to make improvements for our members.

The word for April is “Mobilize”. Every day, every employee should let management know we want a fair contract.

Thanks in Advance for your support from your Bargaining Team.
