AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI WEDNESDAY, MARCH 17, 2021
KINGS CONTRACT UPDATE
President Niccollai reported today that unfortunately the Rumor Mill has been running rampant concerning the status of our Kings Contract. Please pay no attention to the Rumor Mill. There was no contract extension for a year.
Your Union has taken the position that Kings commenced Contract Negotiations as part of an Industry Group and since they dropped out of the group because of the bankruptcy, it has been our intent to deliver the outstanding Industry Contract to our Kings Brothers and Sisters. The Company is reluctant to provide us with the Industry Contract and they are, in fact, seeking a much lower cost agreement concerning wages, healthcare benefits and Pension.
Your Union is not interested in reopening negotiations and working against our best interests by granting economic concessions and givebacks. Again, our position is we want and expect the Industry Contract and, with the militant support of the Kings membership, that remains our goal.
We will continue to keep the membership informed as to any new events. We also wish to apprise everyone that we are seeking an expeditious resolution with retroactive wage increases.
WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY
