A message from Daren Green ( President of Hamilton Steelworkers Area Council )

 Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Members and Retirees of Local 5328

Good evening all. 

 The schedule for the two weeks of shutdown and the week returning after shutdown, week of July 19 are out. The July 19 schedule  may change as there may be people coming back from sick leave. There are a few layoffs upon the return. 

 As most may know, the company did qualify for CEWS for period 4. That payment should have been made last Thursday and will now be paid on the next pay day, July 9. I have demanded a separate deposit and pay statement but I will guess that won’t happen!!

Good evening all. 

 Scheduling seems to be a bit of a mess lately! That has to do with sales and production planning getting signals crossed!! The company does not know what one day to the next brings!  Most of what you see scheduled should be this way till shutdown but don’t hold your breath!! 

To the management at ArcelorMittal Hamilton east. 

 I, like most of my coworkers are wondering what is going on with pathway that you have dubbed the green mile. 

 First, do you know that the green mile is a Steven King story about an inmate on death row. And the last walk he will take to the electric chair is called the green mile. 

 Although this nickname is kind of fitting as you are pushing your employees into an unsafe and dangerous position. 

 You used industrial Machine paint on the floor. All this will do is make the floor more of a slipping hazard.
