UWUA Local 612 members:  There were many rumors out today.  The Union attorney has filed a labor charge against Peoples Gas and the Executive Board decided to not counter the Company’s most recent settlement offer for the Construction grievance that was filed.
In response to this the Company has informed the Union it intends to abide by our contract and restore the Terms and Conditions that were in effect on August 28, 2014.  We have a comprehensive list of what these terms and conditions are, but do not know how the Company plans to accomplish this.  The Union will continue to process  our grievance on in house construction until we are satisfied that the terms and conditions of employment in effect before August 28, 2014 are fully complied with.
Please ensure you are performing all functions of your job in accordance with the SOP’s provided by the Company and in the safest manner possible amid all of this turmoil and distraction in our workplace.
Please call Dave Cole or any Union Officer or Representative if you have any questions.
