Local 705 contract talks are about to begin and the union is being very secretive about who will be on the commitee. I hope that nobody from the preceeding contract is allowed (they should be too ashamed to even try) Our contract usually copies the national but they better not even be close this year. The national took all kinds of concessions for the Company to bail out Central States. Our pension is healthy and solvent. We better not see any such concessions or takebacks. Our local talks big ... lets see if they bargain big.
