Pre Bargaining Meetings

“The official start of Bargaining 2016”

 What is this for?

Your Bargaining Committee is requesting your participation and attendance.  We want you to show up and tell us what you want to see in our 2016 Contract Negotiations.

We understand that 44% of you rejected our last contract.  This is your chance to voice your opinion on the changes/improvements that you want to see in 2016.

 75% of all respondents from our Post Bargaining Survey stated that they would participate in “Special Meetings” regarding bargaining issues.   

Please understand that the idea’s and statements that you, the membership, make at these meetings will turn into written proposals that will be presented at the bargaining table, later this year, with Evraz.

 If you don’t show up and voice your opinion, the Bargaining Committee will not be able to turn your opinion into a proposal.

 Your Bargaining Committee is committed in doing the best possible job that they can do, for you and the all the members of USW 5890.  But we can’t do it without your participation.  We understand that everyone has a busy schedule.  So this is why we have set up these meetings over 2 days, hopefully giving everyone a chance to attend.

 This is your chance to affect the next “Collective Bargaining Agreement”
