President's Message - June 13, 2021

Members and Retirees of Local 5328

Good evening all.   

  The negotiating committee has prepared our proposals this past week. We went through all the submitted surveys. We begin Monday morning and I would personally like to thank the committee for putting in some long days and hard work this past week!!  

  While we are out of the plant we will be available for emergencies. If you have an issue with the schedule or something minor, please see one of the shop Stewards, 

Peter Junker, test room/furnace 

Geoff Oberfrank, North test 

Mat Smith, wire draw 

Adam Coles, wire draw 

Mat Major, oil temper.  

  We will likely schedule a monthly membership meeting on or about the last week of June. It may be online but I’m waiting to see if restrictions  lift in the next few weeks.  

  Shirts are for sale if you are interested in supporting your bargaining committee. They are $20.00 each. There is a picture attached below. If you are interested please see Geoff Oberfrank in North Testroom ( Days this weekend, Nights on Wednesday & Thursday – 12 hours ) , Ed Bratetich in North Testroom ( Days on Monday & Tuesday - 12 hours),  Peter Junker in North Testroom ( Nights on Monday & Tuesday – 12 hours ) or Matt Major in the Oil Temper ( Sunday to Thursday 8 hours Nights ). The deadline to order shirts is Thursday June 17th at 7pm.  Any money that is left over from the order of shirts will be donated to a charity.  


  Have a great and safe weekend! 

In solidarity, 

Anthony Ciaramella
