Stewards, President and Bargaining Team Elected.
On March 26, members came together at the Steelworkers Hall for our General Membership Meeting (GMM) – which is the highest decision making body for the local. The agenda included elections, health & safety updates and reports on the status of pensions.
Incumbent president Nancy Pridham, was re-elected in an uncontested race, along with chief steward, Thomas Anderson. In addition, a host of new stewards were elected to serve as on-the-ground liaisons between members and the local.
As 2014 is a bargaining year, the membership elected six people who, along with our local president, will represent us at the bargaining table across from management .
Following the outcome GMM, the local administered a bargaining survey in order for members to help shape the priorities for the negotiating team.
The survey was released on Friday, March 28th and finished on April 7th. Results will be disseminated in a demands setting meeting.
