IUE-CWA LOCAL 201 GE CONTRACT 2011 REPORTS

 


GE CONTRACT 2011 -  REPORT # 24

This morning (Wed. June 22), the IUE-CWA GE Conference Board delegates voted to recommend approval of the 4 year the "small table" agreement to the membership.The vote took place this morning in NYC. It is is now a "tentative" agreement and being sent back for Membership ratification votes at all IUE-CWA GE locals. Voting is taking place at all IUE-CWA locals during the next week with the deadline for votes tallies to be submitted to the IUE-CWA Conference Board being Wed. June 29th (by 10PM EST). IUE-CWA Local 201 delegates voted against approving the agreement based on some serious reasons outlined in REPORT # 23 posted on this web site. Local 201 was the only IUE-CWA GE local that voted against the proposed national IUE-CWA agreement.

The UE Conference Board votes on their National Agreement (virtually identical) tomorrow and they then will conduct membership votes also. The other CBC unions (like Evendale, Oh) have various voting schedules as many are still in local negotiations. These votes of the UE and other CBC unions have no direct impact on the IUE-CWA locals vote tally on our proposed National agreement.

Local 201 is putting out a communication today on the shop floor, which includes the upcoming schedule for the next 7 days in terms of meetings and membership voting in Lynn.
