Brothers and Sisters,
The County countered pretty much all our bargaining proposals with NO!
Get ready to fight, I do not expect to get an agreement by October 1. The question I have for you is, What will you do to support your CWA bargaining team. You are the Union. Get ready to go to work and send a clear message to the County that you want them to bargain in good faith.
One way you can do this is to come to the bargaining meetings when they come up. If you are working, put in for the time off. If they deny your time off, then send a copy of the denial to CWA Local 3181 at email@example.com or fax it to the Union at 561-640-9099.
You will also be seeing a petition going around for all of you to sign. When someone approaches you with the petition, sign it.
The next bargaining session is set for:
May 30, 2018 at the HR Department, 100 Australian Ave, Room 300 at 10:00 a.m.
I hope to start seeing you at these meetings.
In unity, Rick Poulette, President, CWA Local 3181
