IUE-CWA LOCAL 201 GE CONTRACT 2011 REPORTS

 


GE CONTRACT 2011 - REPORT # 25

The IUE-CWA LOCAL 201 FULL EXECUTIVE POLICY BOARD voted 13-0 today (Thursday, June 23) to recommend rejection of the national "tentative agreement" of the new GE Contract. The Policy Board will be putting out the reasons for the rejection recommendation by a leaflet in the shops tomorrow and it will also be up on this web site very soon. The reasons are consistent with the reasons our Business Agent Ric Casilli, cited in Report #23 on this web site, for his rejection vote in New York and is consistent with the reasoning of all 4 of Local 201 Conference Board delegates who voted rejection in New York also.

Our Full IUE-CWA GE Stewards Council will be given the full Contract Memorandum Of Understanding at the Council's meeting tomorrow for explanation and discussion of its good points as well as it's terrible points. The full Local 201 GE Stewards Council will then take a recommendation vote to refer to the Local 201 Membership who vote next Wed. June 29. There will be a Membership meeting next Tuesday, June 28 to review the entire Contract with members before they have to vote Wednesday, June 29.
