Joint Apprenticeship Program from the Office of the President

Sisters and Brothers.
As per 2016 bargaining Local 707 was successful in bargaining a new apprenticeship program.
Notification for the program was posted on the in-plant boards today.
Due to the high interest I have received since bargaining I thought it prudent to not only post it on the boards in the plant but also on to our own phone app and website. I encourage all members interested in the Joint Apprenticeship Program to apply.
This will be a great opportunity for all interested members to enhance there skills and education.

2016 Local Bargaining Language from the Office of the President

Sisters and Brothers

This is an update to advise you know that we are still waiting to have the local agreement booklet completed in print and PDF from 2016 bargaining. My intent was to get this to the membership sooner but as of yet it has still not been completed.

This will be posted as soon as I receive a completed copy but in the mean time I felt oit would be best to share the scanned documents and changes from bargaining.

These links below will provide you the amendments to Exhibit “B”, Health and Safety and Skilled Trades from 2016 Bargaining.

If you have any questions please call me at anytime
