A vote of members of a collective agreement unit to distance themselves from the union that represents it. In Washington, certification applications and procedures for employees are processed by the Public Relations Commission for Employment (PERC). Since negotiations began in February 2015, your negotiating committee has worked hard to secure the best possible agreement. The support and participation of our members, including the completion of a strong strike mandate, has been instrumental in achieving this settlement. But your participation is always necessary. It is now time for members to vote on the interim agreement recommended by their union bargaining committee. The time has come to vote on the adoption or rejection of this interim memorandum of understanding. If the majority of those who cast a ballot support the recommendation to adopt the memorandum across Ontario, in which Loblaws RCSS and Great Food members work, then the changes described in this document will be added to your collective agreement, which will be your new collective agreement that defines your wages, benefits, working conditions. , etc. for years to come. The point of collective bargaining, on which one of the two parties notes that no further progress can be made on the way to an agreement.
GREEN COVE SPRINGS, Fla. – After months of deadlock, Clay County School management resumed discussions with representatives of the Clay County Education Association and reached an interim agreement Monday on the distribution of salary increases for teachers. A temporary work stoppage by a group of workers, not necessarily unionized, to file a complaint, impose an application for a change in conditions of employment, obtain recognition or settle a dispute with management. The right to strike is not granted to Washington State employees, according to RCW 41.80.060 and RCW 41.56.120. During negotiations, one or both parties may call a mediator who is a neutral third party. The mediator does not have the power to impose an agreement, but works with the parties to help them reach a mutually acceptable agreement. It is quite surprising that this problem ends up in the union and the employer`s lap to solve when they have few political levers to do so. I do not expect postal workers to fund a misguided government policy, but that is what they seem to be doing here (and please put to bed the foolish position that credit tests are not an indicator of the health of plan DB.) As a general rule, this is a formal complaint by the union that accuses an infringement, misapsed or misinterpretation of one or more conditions of the parties` collective agreement.
