Local 5147 Emergency Meeting to Discuss Strike Authorization Vote: Monday, January 18
Monday, January 18th
9:00 am, 1:00 pm, 6:00 & 9:00 pm
Management is demanding a three-year contract that does not address the many concerns the membership has at HRH. In addition, they only want to provide raises of 1.4%, 1.6% and 2% each year.
We offered them an out – a one-year contract for 2.25%. This would allow a year for them to recoup some of their business losses from the COVID shutdown. We could then return to the table to try and make the improvements you have all demanded. Instead, management wants to use the pandemic to try and force us into a sub-par contract with minimal raises for a full three years.
Your committee is therefore calling for strike authorization vote. On this call we will discuss the upcoming vote and the status of our negotiations. It is imperative that every member join one of these calls to stay informed on how to vote.
