Brothers and Sisters,
Here is the latest Master Labor Agreement negotiations update as of 6/13/2018.
Local 612 negotiated with the Association of General Contractors (AGC) twice out of the three meetings scheduled since the first agreement extension. The AGC cancelled one of the scheduled meetings. Currently your negotiating team believes further negotiations are necessary to bring you the best contract.
We are working hard to get you the best agreement we can, therefore we extended the agreement thru July 6th 2018. This is to make sure the contractors can legally make contributions to the Trust on your behalf as we continue the negotiations.
We have three more dates scheduled, June 25th, 28th and July 2nd. We will continue to work diligently to get you an agreement that is worthy of your vote.
I want to emphasize that we will have a Special Called Meeting once we have a tentative agreement to discuss changes to the Master Labor Agreement.
Per the Local 612 survey we will be voting by mail on this agreement.
Again thanks for your patience,
Todd J. Mickelson and your 612 Negotiating Team
