A HOLIDAY MESSAGE FROM PRESIDENT JOHN T. NICCOLLAI - THURSDAY, DECEMBER 24, 2020

 

As we approach the Holiday Season with a vaccine just around the corner, we have many reasons to be thankful.

As essential workers, we continue to bring home a well deserved paycheck, where many in the labor force have not seen money in over ten months.

Our contract negotiations were a tremendous success and will provide for our Full-time and Part-time workforce for many years to come, especially with our no co-pay healthcare.

CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS UPDAT - President Niccollai reported today that the Union Contract Negotiating Committee met again today with the Negotiating Committee for the Employers.  The Company gave us a second contract proposal, which was slightly better than the first proposal, but still far short of our goals and needs.  The biggest positive move made by the Employers related to the fact that they will continue to fund our Defined Benefit Pension Plan for both full-time and part-time members.  The biggest disappointment is the Company’s position to require a 9 ½% deduction fro
