Gas Workers ratified a first contract by over 90% overwhelming majority.

Business Manager and National Executive Board member of UWUA Local 18007 Rick Passarelli, proudly announces that on Sunday August 28th, 2016 the Gas Workers ratified a first contract by over 90% overwhelming majority.

“I would like to thank my entire bargaining team for their tireless work put in to these negotiations. Special thanks to Tim Jaroch, and national Sr. Rep Jim Gennett and the entire Local 18007 executive board. Our team worked extremely hard to stay professional and come to the table each session very prepared and resolved to bring back a fair contract our members could be proud of. It goes without saying I am extremely proud to bring back to Chicago UWUA jobs that belong here, and will remain here in a Union city. I have had this on my radar for several years as a goal of the local and our National Union, the team has done just that, and I could not be prouder of this group. Our new call center reps were part of the process from the start, they listened to the great benefits and protections of becoming a union brother and sister, and never wavered from their vision to make it happen. They spoke with one resounding voice on Sunday by becoming part of the UWUA family and we welcome them”.
