Hello Sisters and Brothers

As the end of summer is fast approaching, I hope everyone had a much more enjoyable summer then what they had last year. As much as I would like to be able to state that morale within the company has improved or at least is heading in the right direction I am unable to put that forth as a statement of fact or truth.

Sadly it is just the opposite, the company continues its “Just make them grieve it “approach to how they want to deal with the issues that are continuing and even invent language that doesn’t exist.

Hopefully the upcoming arbitrations when complete will serve to illuminate the fact that its always better to follow the contract instead of find ways to try and twist wording around to make it fit the scenario you are trying to create.
