BARGAINING POWER

Local 945 negotiates with our employer for your wages, benefits and working conditions. In 1960, we united to improve the quality of our workplace. We're proud of the victories listed below.

WORKERS'  RIGHTS  and RECOGNITION

  • Before discipline occured withour representation. now trained union stewards are there to support you and enfore your contract.
  • Before, there were no internal hiring rights. Now, vacancies are posted and qualified internal candidates must be interviewed.

JOB SECURITY

  • Before, you could be laid off without notice. Now, our employer must give you four weeks notice.
  • Before, you could work for 20 + years and still be treated as a temp. Now, temporary jobs are limited.

FLEXIBILITY FOR WORKING FAMILIES

  • Before, your supervisor could tell you when to take your vacation. now, your right to take care of yourself and your family is protected by our contract.
  • Before, schedules were imposed. Now, flexible work schedules and job sharing can be negotiated.

SALARIES AND BENEFITS

  • Before, we had no power over salary decisions. Now, we bargain with our employer as equals. Last year we won a 2% wage increase plus step increases, and we held the line on health care costs.
