THANKS TO ALL THAT CAME OUT THIS MORNING FOR THE INFORMATIONAL PICKET IN FRONT OF 2315 SALEM RD IN CONYERS! YOUR EFFORTS DO NOT GO UNNOTICED BY THE COMPANY!!

August 9, 2019

Over the last two days, the bargaining team has continued to work diligently to piece together the remaining open issues and reach a tentative agreement.  With the contract extended to Saturday, the company seems to be willing to make an effort to reach an agreement.  Of course, it remains to be seen whether they will move enough.  Many major parts of the puzzle like wages, benefits, and job security are still being discussed. Continue your mobilization efforts, they are noticed.

Brothers and Sisters,

Early this morning the Utility Operations bargaining team met with the company to discuss the issues that were still on the table. We had a lengthy and in depth dialogue around our issues, and why they are imperative to our members.

In addition to wages and benefits, our members need job security, better working conditions and a better quality of life. We will not stop until our demands are met.

Last night, the bargaining team met with the company. The company rejected our comprehensive proposal and presented another draconian proposal, which fell well short of anything we could accept. We have arranged another counter package to present the company today, and we expect a realistic response.
Thanks to Local 3704 for our lunch. Prepare! Mobilize! Engage!

Yesterday, we received a comprehensive package proposal from the company. After giving the package its due consideration, we determined it is far short of what our members deserve.  Last night and this morning, we continued compiling our extensive counter package, which encompasses all the things we are fighting to gain. We will present our counter to the company today and await their response. Thanks to the D3 Mobilization Team for lunch.
