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:
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
