I hope this message finds you and your families well. I will start with manufacturing and our brothers and sisters at Kinkisharyo.
As of October 27, we had a tentative agreement that has been ratified with Kinkisharyo. This agreement will improve wages, benefits and time off for all members. Some highlights are sick days going from 32 hours to 40 hours, and wages increases totaling 25.5% over three years. I would like to thank all of our members for being patient during the process.
We sent Covanta our bargaining request and are waiting for dates to begin negotiating a new CBA. I will keep you updated in the coming months as to where we are at with negotiations.
If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
