“Orange” Contract Bargaining November 10, 2017 – Bargaining Report #61

The Company has been posting misinformation to you since they decided to send out their ridiculous “final offer”. The more we discuss their final offer, the more misinformation we uncover. Your Bargaining Team has conveyed our disgust to the company over their actions, and it is comforting to see our membership standing united and not falling for their propaganda. Talks continued this week and the Union passed our full counter proposal to the company that includes all those issues you’ve identified as a priority in this round of bargaining.

The Company continues to reject proposals surrounding flexible EWP time, a fair absence plan, real job security, new work for technicians, call sharing language that would protect call center workers, language securing retail jobs and addressing the issues facing our supply/warehouse members. Rather than share their enormous profits with the workers that make them profitable, the Company would rather mislead their employees and try to convince them that less is more. Discussions at the table are scheduled to continue throughout the weekend. We are here fighting and we need you to be mobilized and angry in the workplace.

Stay strong Brothers and Sisters. When We fight, We Win!

In Solidarity,
