    We probably had about 150 show up and the meeting lasted two and a half hours. We went through the contract article by article, everybody got to step up to the mic and read their proposals. A lot on excessive overtime, pensions, creating more full-time work, sub-contracting jobs, working conditions, and safety issues. Not a lot on raises like previous contract meetings.

    I stepped up to the mic and proposed that the Opt Out List language should be amended in that once an employee signs the List, he should be on it permanently and not have to re-sign every five months.
