 2 MORE DEALERS HAVE TESTED POSITIVE!

 Voluntary Separation Offer

 When we stick together we win!

The Local's leadership worked diligently to iron out an agreement with Foxwoods to protect our workers and to uphold your collective Bargaining Agreement and although we were willing to offer temporary scheduling and partial severance concessions...concessions they ask for in evey contract cycle,  in exchange for them living up to their contractual obligation for Medical insurance during layoff ....they refused! 

During a Global Pandemic their bottom line was more important than your heath!!! 

WE WILL FIGHT THIS!!!!!

 In this unprecendented situation , Casinos across the country are paying their workers,even partial wages for 2 weeks, but Foxwoods would not agree to any paid leave. Apparently they can afford to build 2 new casinos, but not for the workers they currently employ!! This is unacceptable! 

We negotiated the following terms, but you must file unemployment if you want to be paid. 

 

 WE HAVE NOT AGREED TO ANY OF THIS!!!

 IT'S TIME TO FIGHT!

Statement of Julie Kushner, Director, UAW Region 9A on the UAW Endorsement of Secretary Clinton for President

The next four years will be critical for expanding the labor movement, especially in places like Region 9A where thousands of workers are actively seeking to join the UAW. Keeping a Democrat in the White House is critical to our success. The appointments made by the president to the National Labor Relations Board, the Supreme Court and lower federal courts, for example, greatly impact our ability to move forward a progressive agenda.

Congress will be voting in the next several days whether to authorize a vote on the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) Trade deal. A yes vote on Fast Track means that Congress will only be able to vote Yes or No on the TPP trade deal without any opportunity to provide input or make changes. The UAW is deeply opposed to this manner of passing any legislation particularly trade laws that have a great impact on our members and working families across the United States.
