Coalition News

Just some information from our GC for members, the IBEW joined the coalition so all crafts on our property are being represented.

This is the first time for us to use this process for negotiations and the first time for coalition leaders to represent 100% of the unions on a property.

We are entering some important phases and it will be important to get members updated information we are asking all members sign up for text messaging.
