TO ALL OPERATIONS AND SERVICE MAINTENANCE UNIT EMPLOYEES EMPLOYED BY THE COUNTY OF ORANGE
December 30, 2015
*Note: These notices were mailed out 12-30-2015

 

Congratulations to all of you on your overwhelming victory in favor of Teamster representation in the workplace. Enclosed you will find a copy of the Certification of Representative from the County of Orange and a press release from the International Brotherhood of Teamsters. It is imperative that we maintain solidarity through the contract negotiations and stay united until a Collective Bargaining Agreement between Teamsters Local 952 and the County of Orange is executed. The contract ratification requires a secret ballot vote.

We will soon be holding informational/ contract proposal meetings at Teamsters Local 952's Union hall. We will also be distributing contract bargaining surveys. Please keep an eye on our website (teamsters952.org) and your bulletin boards for informational contract proposal meeting dates and times. We are working with the County in transitioning trustees on to your enhanced benefits trust fund. We look forward to working with you and your fellow employees in order to get a good contract that is more in line with the value of service that you provide to the County. The service that you provide is a critical function for the community and your Employer.

Thank you for your support of the Teamsters Union. If you have any questions please feel free to contact your Business Representative Norma Lopez at 714-740-6246 and/or Organizer Bobby Block at 951-310-9540.

Fraternally,
Patrick D. Kelly
Secretary-Treasurer and Principal Officer

Judge: Con-way Violated Rights of Workers in Los Angeles

November 19, 2015

Con-way Freight, Inc. violated the rights of workers who were trying to form their union with the Teamsters and must re-hire two workers it unlawfully fired during the organizing campaign, among other remedies, an administrative law judge with the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has ruled.

“By instructing employees not to wear union insignia, threatening employees for supporting the Union, filing criminal charges against an employee, suspending employees, and terminating employees because they supported the Union, the Respondent has engaged in unfair labor practices…,” Administrative Judge Eleanor Laws wrote in her decision.

The workers at Con-way’s Los Angeles terminal were trying to join Local 63. The company must cease its illegal activities, reinstate the two fired workers and pay them back wages and benefits, and take other steps. To Read the Decision, Click Here.

Supreme Court Seems Poised to Deal Unions a Major Setback

Today (January 11, 2016), the Supreme Court heard oral arguments in Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association, a case that has the potential to destroy public sector unions.

Hundreds of public employees and union supporters gathered in front of the Supreme Court today, united with one voice, to speak out against this attack.
Now is the time to mobilize all public sectors business agents, elected officers, stewards and interested members to approach all non-members, so we can strengthen the union, expand our membership base, and maintain sufficient resources to organize, negotiate for, and effectively represent all Teamsters. Attached is the Teamsters Power Building Program if you have not already received it in the mail. The materials included in this packet should assist local unions in conducting training sessions to educate and train business agents, shop stewards and interested members.
Check out this recent article on Friedrichs: How The Supreme Court Could Crush Public-Sector Unions.
