10 POINT PLAN & REDUCE DUES BY 50%  

 

  • Create new financial spending (NO POLITICS & NON-GERMANE ACTIVITIES).  This includes Local 1000 staff FINALLY getting guaranteed medical retirement benefits-end the hypocrisy!!

  • Eliminate SALARY STIPENDS & TIME REQUIREMENTS for ALL volunteer elected positions!

  • Create a two-term limit for ALL volunteer elected positions.

  • Create a single Union membership class who ALL have the same voting rights and job stewardship regardless of paying status. 

  • Create transparent accountability by publishing ALL questions along with the answers on a new Union secured website available to ALL represented employees!

  • Create guaranteed enforceable Union contracts by finally hiring a TEAM of college-educated experienced professional labor negotiators to aggressively fight for substantial compensation (21%) that includes GEO pay and COLA for everyone.

  • Create trust and accountability through videotaping 1) the entire voting process (printing, mailing, opening and counting envelopes with their ballots) and 2) quarterly General Councils/BOD meetings.

  • Eliminate the 3.5% OPEB-CERBT deduction from our paychecks!

  • Create and use a strike fund to support lengthy contract negotiations.

  • Create a new, independent Local 1000 identity. 

LOCAL 1000: WHAT'S MISSING?

 

Establish a strike fund to support lengthy contract negotiations.

 

Protections against contracts or side letter agreements that reduce our money (PLP/OPEB-CERBT).

 

An increase in dues-paying membership since 2008.

 

Respect for ALL dissenting Union represented members.

 

The right for ALL Local 1000 represented employees to be job stewards and have voting rights!!
