Bargaining 2017, Day 1: Translation and Temporary Workers

Your union advanced proposals on temporary worker status, preserving healthcare in our uncertain political environment. We were able to reach tentative agreement on one item assuring timely translation and distribution of new contracts.

On Thursday, March 16, we’re preparing to discuss issues relating to worker safety and fair scheduling in the custodial department, ensuring access to affordable health insurance, and providing dental benefits that reasonably address the needs of members.

Remember – it’s your contract too!

Will you stand up and join us in fighting for a fair deal for our families?
