The outgoing officers left behind contract negotiations that were never finished and contract files that were disorganized. That’s not stopping the new Local 251.
The new leadership appointed Dave Robbins as Contract Coordinator to keep contract negotiations on track.
Robbins and Business Agents are resuming negotiations with Employers where contracts talks were never finished by the old Local 251 officers. They are also preparing to open negotiations where contracts are set to expire.
The new Local 251 includes a new approach to contract negotiations. In every contract, members will have a voice in setting the union’s bargaining proposals and in choosing the Bargaining Committee that will negotiate with the employer.
