Brothers and Sisters,
It's been a long hot summer so far. Extreme heat has been a constant concern along with severe storms moving across the country. Our members are doing an outstanding job under difficult circumstances. Please remember to take your breaks and stay hydrated.
Equipment has been a problem in all our cities. Old tractors, pushouts, beltloaders and bag carts can be dangerous. Please follow procedure and put all unsafe equipment out of service. I know this makes it more difficult to do a job, but safety has to be our main focus.
Attendance policy arbitration September 20th can't come soon enough. We are working with the Association to address the problems.There have been some changes to the overtime. These issues were brought forward by the TWU. They are in the process of being fixed. Workbrain is a real nightmare to work with, but we will get there eventually.
I'll see you soon in your cities. We always take care of one another. We always lead the way. We are the TWU.
STAY TWU STRONG
President Local 510
