Hello USW Local 8599 Family!

PDF icon 20210519102232.pdf

Your Negotiations Team has agreed on an MOU – Memorandum of Understanding with the District for our 2020-2021 Bonus.

I want you all to know that we presented many counter proposals to the District. The initial proposal was for a 5% bonus, period, the end! This is the final result.

Your Negotiations Committee was again in negotiations with the District yesterday Wednesday 5/12/2021. We are getting close to finishing up our negotiations for this year. 
We proffered the USW Counter offer on the bonus and the District countered again with their offer. We will be back again with another counter proposal at our next meeting. 
We are not there yet Steelworkers! Please be patients as we work through the details. 
We are also going through tough discussions with Article 47 Cameras/Time Clocks as well as Article 15 Suspension and Demotion.
