Reasons to Reject the Contract
July 18, 2022
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
ELIMINATION OF TIER 2 MEANS NOTHING WITHOUT AN INCREASE TO WAGE PROGRESSION RATE• No improvement to the wage progression rate. Remains at $0.50/hr. twice a year.o The current wage progression rate means on average it would take 23 years to reach the rate range maximum. o Company rejected multiple Union proposals addressing wage progression rates. o Company rejected Unions proposal of zoom to the top of scale after 8 years from hire date.
GENERAL WAGE INCREASES COMPANY MISSES THE TARGET!• Year 1 of the contracto $1.50/hr. for those at the top of the rate o $2.00/hr. for those not at the top of the rate.• Year 2 & 3 of the contract 3% GWI• Inflation has increased to 9.1% in the last year• Those at the top of scale received 0% GWI in the previous 7 ½ years.• Those below the top of scale received only 6% GWI in the previous 7 ½ years.• WE DESERVE MORE!
Company rejected all proposals to a pension (Defined Benefit Plan)! The Company is asking you to take increased responsibility of funding your retirement with the elimination of the Company automatic contribution into your 401K. (THIS IS A COMPANY PROPOSED TAKE AWAY!)
