Brothers and Sisters,
This communication is regarding the Master Labor Agreement negotiations with the Associated General Contractors (AGC). Locals 612 and 302 have been working together to get the best possible contract for the members and we finally have a tentative agreement with the AGC for your review and consideration.
Many issues and proposals were presented by both sides during the course of negotiations. All concerns were addressed and proposals went back and forth over many meetings and sometimes with intense discussions. There was a meeting that we simply walked out of negotiations due to frustration. After 2 contract extensions both sides agreed that we were at a point where we needed to bring the proposed successor agreement back to you for consideration.
I am pleased to report this proposed three-year successor agreement represents language improvements along with good economics. We have included a summary of the proposed changes for your review along with your ballot to vote.
Local 612 has scheduled two (2) “Special Called Meetings” for review and discussion:
Monday, July 16, 2018 ~ 7:00 pm
