May 1st Promotions

 

Brothers & Sisters,
As we approach the beginning of our new (5) year contract on May 1st the Executive Board would like to revisit some of the many accomplishments that will be improving and advancing the quality of life for our families. Several of the items identified are already in motion for 2018!
• (230) Utility Workers will be accelerated into a minimum of (1) pay upgrade in addition to the negotiated May 1st Union raise. These promotions account for an 8% pay raise.
• (5) Utility Worker #6 will be going to Crew Leader school on Monday, April 1st This is 8-10 years ahead of the previous schedule.
• (30) Utility Worker 4 / 6 will be going to school for Journeymen. This is more than 4 years ahead of the previous auto progression.
• (2) Utility Workers will be promoted into the Vault Department.
• Utility Workers will have the opportunity to fill upcoming welder positions.
• Senior Service Specialist #1s will be relieved from night shifts and Tuesday -Saturday workweeks in which some were assigned to for over 10 years.
• (10) Senior Service Specialist #2s will be going to school for #1 promotions.
• (60) Project Workers will be promoted to the Operator Apprentice position within a few weeks.
• (6) New positions as a Field trainer.
• (2) New Facilities Maintenance Mechanics.
• (3) New positions as a Fleet Assistant.
• New opportunities as a TUI (Temporary Union Instructor)
These are only a few of the many benefits of being a Local 18007 proud Union member. These accomplishments were possible only by enforcing our right to collectively bargain for the economic packages and benefits we have earned. Local 18007 has always been and will continue to remain-
UNION STRONG!
In Unity,
Local 18007 Executive Board.
