Following the June IEC meeting, presidents and officers from a number of Transit, Universities, Utilities and Services Division locals gathered in Chicago to discuss key issues, attend a number of trainings, and continue to build strength and unity within the division.
Local 2017 President Matt Conway and his team have reached an agreement for members employed at Union Tank Car in Altoona, Pennsylvania. The five-year agreement provides for three percent annual wage increases in the first four years and a three and a half percent wage increase in year five. The agreement also provides members with incremental benefit and pension improvements over the five-year term. Local 2017 members have given the tentative agreement a thumps-up, and voted to ratify by a nearly two thirds margin.
