2019 Bargaining Committee Update #6

From Your 2019 USW Bargaining Committee

Friday, July-26-19

Release #6

Good day Brothers and Sisters and Friends of Steel,

Your bargaining committee has been working diligently to achieve your best interest at the table. We agreed to pursue the company’s time line in an effort to get the best contract for you, our membership. Our intention was to have a deal for you to consider before vacation shutdown. However, both parties are working through some sensitive monetary issues and we will be taking a recess period for both Teams to evaluate their respective positions.

We are working through very difficult issues that are concerning for the membership and hope to get to a resolve that builds on our past. Our position is, that there is a good future here and that we are an important part of that future in what the Thompson Nickel Belt has to offer our members and community.

We will be reconvening sometime in August, and will be in contact with you, our membership to provide an update as we move forward to our next meeting dates.

 Please contact the Union with any questions you may have about the bargaining process, and thanks for your ongoing support.

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee

Warren, Scott, Matt, Keith, Dave and Todd.
