Sisters and Brothers,
Your IAM Local 387 bargaining committee has been working hard to secure a contract offer from GKN Aerospace that meets the demands of our members. On Friday, the Company was not prepared to provide a final offer and requested more time to address the union’s proposals. Both parties agreed to a contract extension until midnight February 21, 2021 in order to continue working toward a successful agreement. If there is continued progress from the Company, your bargaining committee believes it’s better to bargain at the table rather than over a burn barrel.

Our agenda is simple: We want to negotiate the best possible contract for the membership. Meanwhile, the membership should continue to make your voices heard to Company Leadership and prepare to vote on the Company’s final offer the weekend of February 20, 2021.
Stay Strong Sisters and Brothers.

            In Solidarity,                                          

            Earl Schuessler
            President/Directing Business Representative
