Unit 3

FRIDAY TALKS - JUNE 28, 2019

Brothers and Sisters

I wanted to take a moment and update you on some important announcements.

We have filed over 60 grievances in the first 5 months of the year and have been aggressively defending our members. We have made substantial progress and have been notified by the district that effective 6/1/19 satisfactory sales performance is 90%, not 100% Needs improvement will be 80-89%. This is great news and will help keep more of our members off discipline for sales performance. There are no changes currently to attendance or adherence.  

Contract expiration is closer than you think, and we are already preparing as a local. We would like to invite our members to a class that goes over our past, our future and how we prepare for our next contract. The class is available on a 1st come, 1st serve basis. Please call or text me at 602 579-6544 and I will add you to the class list. This is an all-day class at our Union Hall. It is a great way to learn and prepare for our next contract.

We will announce our Unit meeting for July after the holiday, hope to see everyone there. We will discuss bargaining, member surveys, and votes that will be occurring.

We have seen a lot of changes in the last few weeks, in more good news we have classes in care and retention starting in July. We will be happy to see new faces and fuller centers.

Please reach out with any questions or concerns

In Unity
