DUES INCREASE EFFECTIVE 1-1-14
Per Capita or Basic dues will be going up to $22.50 on January 1, 2014. This increase was approved by the delegates of the 38th IBEW International Convention held in September of 2011.
The per capita is that portion of your dues that the Union must send directly to the IBEW in Washington, D.C. and keeps the IBEW running. Please make sure you make this correction if you pay directly to the Local. If you are on checkoff it should be corrected by your station.
We had a very successful week last week and completed negotiations at 3 Stations.
WBZ members ratified a 3 year agreement that calls for wage increases only of 2%,2%, 2% and we did not have to be subjected to the time wasting antics of Joe Gerstner from CBS Labor Relations.
WJAR negotiations were a record 2 days and we were able to secure a 3 year agreement with 3%, 2%, 3%. The shop will vote on the package Saturday December 14th.
VPT (Vermont Public Television) bargaining went well too. We bargained a 2 year agreement with 3% and 3%
CONGRATUALATIONS TO ALL
