The IAM/PAE Collective Bargaining Agreement expires on September 18, 2015. I recently have had the initial conversations with the Company concerning setting dates for these negotiations.
Pursuant to the above, please be advised that a call for contract proposals is in order.
Accordingly, all proposed changes to the contract need to be submitted to your local Shop Steward by, or before, July 10, 2015 for submission to District Lodge 142. Each proposal must contain the following information:
- Identify the article, paragraph and page number of the Agreement to be amended
- Proposed contract language change or modification
- Example of problem or reason for change
- Your name, Local Lodge (368) and employee and/or and IAM Book number
Contract proposal forms may be obtained from your Shop Steward or can also be found online.
When submitting more than one change, each change should be on a separate form and must include your signature and IAM book number. Additional information concerning meetings for negotiations will follow as soon as dates are confirmed.
With best wishes, I remain
Sincerely and fraternally,
James M. Samuel
