Early this morning management informed the Union that as of the first week of April the 2″ mill will be shut down for approximately three weeks due to a shortage of steel. The Company does not foresee any layoffs because of this and manpower that is effected will be absorbed into other areas within the pipe division.
Please make sure that if you are effected by the pending movement that your transfer is within the confines of the CBA. If you have questions or concerns we recommend that members speak to their immediate supervisor first. If there is no resolve then we advise that you bring it to the attention of a Union Steward.
