July Bargaining Update

 To our Members,

  On July 12,13 and 14th your 5890 local bargaining committee met with the company and went over our local non-monetary proposals. We’ve been able to proceed into the bargaining process with both the company and union working together to resolve the Tubular Layoff and Recall grievances. Final numbers on those are almost complete, those owed money will be contacted.

Over the 3 days we were able to come to agreement on new language for Articles 8.03,8.05,8.08[a],9.09[ii],12.13,14.01,15.02,18.07, Appendix E, Appendix A and the Inter-Divisional Transfer LOU.  At the table for the company is John Demarco{ lead negotiator], Keith Marchtaller [Tubular], Scott Venables [Steel], Colleen Ackerman [ HR]  and Breanne Ehman[ HR].

Further dates have not been committed to at this time. Once we have further bargaining dates you will be informed.
  In solidarity,

                 Local 5890 Bargaining Committee
