UPDATE* Letter from the Business Agent
Updated On: Jul 12, 2019
Brother and Sisters, 07/10/2019 We want to provide you all with an update on where we currently stand as there is a lot of rumors and confusion. First I want to thank everyone who participated in the 2019 Tentative Agreement contract vote. What separates us from this company is our unique democratic process where our members of our union get the final say. As all of you know, Local 301 in Schenectady and Niskayuna along with Local 201 in Lynn, Massachusetts voted to reject the proposed GE offer. IUE-CWA Conference Board rules have always used a per capita tally system versus a majority system putting the total number of NO votes over the 50% threshold nationally thus rejecting the offer. Remember, the only votes that matter are the IUE-CWA votes as this is our contract and the total makeup of IUE-CWA members is roughly 3,400. We are currently discussing what our next steps will be. As that picture becomes more clearer we will communicate to all of you through this website and through your elected officials in the shops. In the mean time it is business as usual as we are still operating under the terms of the 2015-2019 CBA as neither side has filed the 10 day notice to expire that contract. Again, We want to thank this membership for your resolve, your participation and your patience through this process. Stay united and stay together! In Unity, Rob M Macherone Business Agent, IUE-CWA Local 301
