Important Information

October 19, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Beginning 10/15/16 represented employees may file a request to transfer to another shift within their job classification and within the Center which they work (CBA Article 8, Section 20). The period for filling a “shift preference” request will be from October 15, 2016 through October 30, 2016. Please file your request electronically so you will have electronic documentation you have completed this for your records. Any employee needing assistance filing a request, please contact your union representative and or Employee Relations. Deadline to file a request is October 30, 2016.

A reminder to any employee affected by the surplus that will take effect October 21, 2016 and who will not be eligible to “bump” into the Labor Pool, we will hold “Rapid Response” sessions on Thursday, October 20, 2016. We will be holding two (2) sessions, session one at 1:30pm and session 2 at 3:30pm. These sessions will take place in Bld. 3-61 in the Chinook PER Room. It will be facilitated by Matt Rogers (EI Facilitator). All affected employees please plan to attend. We will have representatives attending from PA State Labor, Unemployment, Career Link, and United Way. Additional and valuable information will be shared at these sessions.

Our UAW Leadership would like to recognize and give many thanks to Greg Fagan, Keith Wachter, and Scott Dorrin for continuing Bill Coskey’s (deceased UAW, V-22 Brother) cause for his yearly tradition of raising money for needy families in our community. This past Friday a fundraiser was held at Monaghan’s Pub for this cause. We are proud to inform our members that $2016.00 was raised during this event. We also thank Monaghan’s Pub for hosting this event and all who attended making this a success, and especially our guest bartender, Ron Duranto (Composite Fabricator). Additional fundraisers will be held throughout the year for our needy families in our communities.

 

Yours in solidarity,

Mike Tolassi, President

GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING

WILL BE HELD

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 9, 2016 AT 10 AM AT:

IAM HALL

251 JANSEN AVE

ESSINGTON, PA 19029

September 29, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Your Executive Board and Bargaining Committee and has made the decision to hold our General Membership meeting Sunday, October 9, 2016, 10: AM. We have made this decision due to The Company’s “intent” to move forward with a surplus scheduled for October 21, 2016 and would like to hold our meeting prior to this date. We are unable to hold our meeting at our hall due to our on-going renovations of the main hall and lobby which we look forward to completion in a few weeks. Please take note of the location of our meeting:

IAM Hall

251 Jansen Ave

Essington, Pa., 19029

 

Please be sure to attend as we have many topics to discuss and we are sure many of you have many questions concerning what is happening within the company.

Also please take note that due to our meeting being held on October 9, 2016 there will not be a General Membership meeting on the 4th Sunday of October which was scheduled for October 23, 2016.

Reminder, effective October 7, 2016, any employee at or below the rate range maximum or Single Rate in effect for their classification will have their base rates increased by application of a two (2%) percent GWI. An employee cannot exceed the maximum of their rate range or Single Rate upon application of a GWI and if applicable, will receive the remaining amount of the GWI in a lump sum payment. In addition, effective October 7, 2016 employees will receive a Cost-of -Living-Adjustment (COLA) of three (3) cents.

 

Yours in solidarity,

Mike Tolassi, President

September 14, 2016

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Please note on your calendar that this month’s General Membership Meeting scheduled for September 25, 2016 will be cancelled due to hall renovations.

Renovation work to our hall is currently in progress and going well. We originally anticipated all work completed before our September’s membership meeting but of course as we all know when performing any types of construction work unexpected issues do arise. We do anticipate all work to be completed before our next scheduled Membership Meeting which is scheduled for October 23, 2016. Please make note of this date and be sure to attend.

Last week I visited Detroit, Michigan for a scheduled UAW Leadership Meeting. I would like to inform our members that our half-hour “strike-fund” dues increase has increased that fund to the amount of 663 million dollars. Our UAW Leadership anticipates that fund to be at their projected balance by the year 2018. At that time the increase will be re-evaluated and discussed at the next UAW convention in that same year. Also, overall UAW membership across the country has increased from 300 thousand to approximately 400 thousand members to date. Please continue to help our great union grow by continuing to purchase UAW made products, especially cars and trucks.

Lastly, I do still notice some of our members patronizing Royal Farms Market across the street from our plant. I again ask of you to please shop elsewhere, Royal Farms is no friend of labor, our community, and all unionized workers. They adamantly steer clear of using organized labor when they build their stores. Please steer clear from shopping at their locations and helping them profit while union trades people lose out on these building contracts.

Yours in solidarity,

Mike Tolassi

President
