I have not given a bargaining update in a while, mainly because there has not been any new information.
Last Friday, I was informed that DOA has sent the formal request to JCOER to review compensation plans (click here). This is the latest news, and when I hear anything further I will pass it on to your WLEA Chapter Directors and Union Stewards. They will have the most accurate and up to date information.
Anything you hear from anyone else I would consider rumor and unreliable. That includes management unless it is directly from Car 1 to you.
In the near future, our union will be moving to a password protected website that will require proper credentials to access or a standalone mobile app that will also be security protected. More info will follow.
