STEWARD JON BUONOMO REPORT

Hello brothers and sisters:

These last few months here at Central shop have been extremely busy. Cohort 8 just finished their six months probation and are already on the streets. Cohort 9 is currently in the middle of theirs. And cohort 10 will be coming to central shop before the new year, which will add another 5 to 10 UWs to our ranks.

During this last month, the Executive Board secured promotions for many union workers in multiple departments. All of the 64 Operation Apprentices system-wide we’re guaranteed promotions into the Utility Worker classification. This promotion guaranteed everyone a future beyond OA6 and granted them ADVANCEMENT but more importantly a CAREER..! Congratulations to everybody.

Another HUGE promotion that was negotiated by the Executive Board was for the UWs. 27 UW4s, 2UW6s and 1UW8, was given promotions and a raise to become leak chasers upon successful completion of school. Once successful in school they will all become UW8s, and their seniority date will restart once they complete school.

With that being said, this is just a portion of what was fought for and secured by the Executive Board. The full details can be found on the Local 18007s
Website or posted on the Union boards at all the shops. If you have further questions ask your stewards!

Brothers and sisters let’s keep showing our support for the local and for all the accomplishments that the Executive Board has done for us. Show up to the union meetings.!! The next meeting will be November 19th 2015. And don’t forget….

UNITED WE WORK
UNITED WE CARE
UNITED WE WIN…

FRATERNALLY,

Jon Buonomo
