Holiday Greetings UPAMM members!
We want to share some updates on bargaining before we all head into the holidays to be with family and friends.
First of all, our 2 for 1 matching will be restored effective January 1, 2021! That at least is something positive to look forward to after a weary 2020.
We have made a proposal to management which includes salaries, raises, and several basic contract items that potentially might be in place early next year if accepted by management. Unfortunately, we will not hear back from management until after the holidays but we are hopeful we can move the process forward as quickly as possible. In the event our proposal is not accepted, we will continue to work towards getting commitments on the priority items identified by you, our members.
Watch your emails for notice of our general membership meeting in January on the 14th at 6pm. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.
Yours in solidarity,
Provisional VP and Chair of UPAMM Bargaining Committee
Jill Hasan, President
Eryn Smith, Secretary
Alex Tiefel, Chief Steward
Christine Willacker, Treasurer
