GKN Speed Facts

Dear GKN Brothers and Sisters,

The Union recently made a request of GKN Aerospace to allow those of our members wishing to leave work early on December 23, 2021, to waive the charging of attendance points on this day.  The Company responded to the Union’s request with a firm “no”, they would not be able to meet the Union’s request at this time.

It is disappointing to the Union that the Company refused to accommodate this modest request during the holiday season as you have diligently reported to work throughout the ongoing pandemic.

District offices will be closed December 24, 2021, through January 3, 2022, returning to business as usual, Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

On behalf of myself and my staff, we want to wish each one of you a very Merry Christmas and safe Happy New Year! 

                                      God Bless You All,

                                 Tom Boelling
