Members and Retirees of Local 5328

Good evening  all. 

 Unfortunately we face more layoffs for next week as the market seems to be going a bit soft. I’m hoping the company has notified those being laid off and showing some respect to workers as they are so big on this word!!??

 The company has not approached the union on the CEWS for period 6 yet.

Good evening all.  

As of August 1st , the base rate is increased by 0.25 cents.

Thank you for your generosity on the plant gate collection for the Backpack Program. We raised $1400.  Incredible!! Again, thank you for supporting such a great cause! 

Have a great and safe long weekend! 

In solidarity,

Good evening all. 

 The company has asked for an agreement to extend the CEWS for period 5. The union executive are looking at this and will determine if it’s beneficial to the members.

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!!
