By now everyone should know that the membership voted to reject and strike at the last ratification meeting. Local 11 has submitted and received sanctions from the IO. As our negotiating team continues to work for an amicable wage package for the membership, I am reminding everyone working on PLA jobs to go to work even if we come to an impasse. I understand the frustration of wanting to stand shoulder to shoulder in solidarity with your brother and sisters, but you will be doing the membership a greater disservice by not abiding by the agreement we fought so hard for. Times are good now, but in the past, and in the future, these same PLA’s will carry us through those lean times.
