AS YOU KNOW
The UE Bargaining Committee met with Hallcon two days and concluded with Hallcon giving the UE a Final Offer just before midnight Friday. Hallcon’s offer simply did not provide the raises that drivers deserve, and the two sides did not come to an agreement.
Hallcon reached out to the Bargaining committee and changed it’s wage and longevity offer. The Union committee discussed the changes and voted to recommend the offer to the members.
UE is recommending a YES vote that will begin Monday September 26th, 2022. To vote for the Tentative Agreement, you must have signed a membership card in order to vote. You can do that by going here: https://railcrew.ueunion.org/join/
If you do not get a text or email ballot, please call (312) 574-0733, leave your name, driver ID, and phone number and your vote yes to accept or no to reject.
Please join one of the Zoom meetings to hear an explanation of the Company offer. The Union committee will answer members questions.
We will hold a series of Zoom meetings for drivers to understand what is in the Company’s final offer, answer questions and have discussion. Zoom links and phone numbers below. (Please remember to check the time zone.)
Members will be asked to vote the Company offer. The Union is recommending a YES vote on the Company offer.
