Members and Retirees of USW Local 5328.

The Union committee met with the company yesterday to discuss the vacations for 2020.

As you all may know, the Union committee meets the company every month. Last meeting we decided to not meet until all pay issues are resolved. 

We also had issues with union dues as well as payroll not forwarding governmental deductions that caused one of workers some serious issues. Enough is enough!  There will be someone from payroll at the plant on Monday. Lets hope it has come to an end.
