Recently during open enrollment with 4 days left of the enrollment period, many members had done nothing. Working with the EB Benefits crew, the Metal Trades and the Local Unions made 1400 phone calls to get members signed up. This was a huge undertaking and I appreciate all the work that went into this and the people who helped. However, it was discovered that many people do not update their contact information. If you have changed your address, phone number or email, please update your information with Personnel Services. I Wish You All A Healthy, Prosperous 2021.

We had an unfortunate incident this past month when a group of well intended but misguided employees decided to protest actions taken by the Company against a coworker. This action put the employees employment in jeopardy, it put the Union in a precarious position, and was like a kick to groin for the Company. Fortunately, when the swelling went down we were able to come to a rapid and reasonable resolution.

The Metal Trades is now online! Check out our website for Union Member Only benefitsts, contact information, Labor Views, and periodic updates. Blue/Gold even up: The Gold Team had 2 less pay hours than the Blue. The members on the Gold Team should have received a 2 hour pay adjustment less any time off for absences. In settlement we accepted $70.00 (before taxes, and other deductions ie: 401k contributions) without any adjustment for absences for the Gold Team members.
