Contract Update

Dear Fellow Union Brothers and Sisters,

As of our last meeting on July 24, Teamsters Local 127 strongly asserted our position on the current contract proposals set forth by MassDot that we deem unjust and unfair for our members.
Local 127 Secretary Treasurer George McGilloway attended the MassDot Board of Directors meeting and apprised them of the negotiations between The Union and MassDot and the unfairly treatment, ignorance, and lack of respect the Teamsters have been receiving. The Board of Directors were let known that the MassDot has handed out raises to some NAGE members as much as 25% while members of Local 127 remained “Red Circled”. Furthermore, MassDot has not given the Local a correct Phase lll spread sheet in over seven years resulting in every spreadsheet presented to us has inaccurate and misleading data on the number of Red Circled members.
In addition, Local 127 has not come to terms with regards to: 1) a compressed work week schedule for our members 2) temporary employees and 3) new classification titles for our members.
Our next contract meeting with the DOT is set for August 15 and the The Local will continue to fight for a fair and equitable contract for our hard working men and women of Local 127.
Secretary Treasurer,
George McGilloway 

Local 127
