Our Contract: What It Is & How It Works

Our contract is a legally binding document that the union negotiates with the company on our behalf. The time length usually varies from local to local, but our contract is five years. The contract lays out how the company and union will perform for the duration set forth. Because of the language in our contract, the company was able to extend it for another year, until August 11, 2023. We encourage everyone to start carefully reading the contract and highlighting and/or making note of things you wish to see changed for the new contract. Pay attention to the language and how it may be written to better benefit us. We are in the information gathering timeframe before the Bargaining Committee takes it into negotiations. They are asking everyone to fill out a survey on what you would like to see added and/or changed for the new contract. They are accepting surveys until March 20th, 2023.
