„I am proud to announce that the union has officially approved a four-year collective agreement with an 83 percent democratic vote for adoption,“ said Eric Tuck, president of ATU Local 107, in a press release posted on Twitter, December 27. In a statement, ATU Local 107 President Eric Tuck said that members have officially approved a four-year collective agreement with 83 percent for it. The city and the union had already announced an interim agreement on December 18, but had not released details of the agreement. The union, which represents 800 bus drivers and mechanics of the Hamilton Street Railway (HSR), says its members voted to ratify a new collective agreement on Friday night. Members of the Amalgamated Transit Union Local 107 overwhelmingly supported and voted in favour of a new contract between the union and the City of Hamilton. The new agreement was presented to union members on Monday and the vote took place today. In November, drivers, mechanics and HSR administration employees voted overwhelmingly in favour of rejecting a contract offer from the previous city, in the absence of disagreement over drivers` salaries, benefits and access to toilets along many bus lines. If you know you want to book a car in a caravan, we would be happy to have an idea of the numbers in advance. Please go to hdlc.ca/caravan and inform us of your email address and the local union.
If, for some reason, we need to move beyond our parking lots at City Hall and look for additional places to meet, we may need to contact some people to gather us nearby. If we do, we will try to bring people together from labour organizations wherever possible The union representing 800 Hamilton transit workers, ATU Local 107, announced on Friday that it had voted in favour of ratifying a new collective agreement. . Please share a lot with your members! (If you use Facebook, this is the best event link you can share: fb.me/e/5F7GDiDTo) We hope to be there until noon. We want to leave until 14 .m. We can`t camp until the movies are there that night… I`m sorry to disappoint the smart people who have already planned this. 🙂 your bargaining team has officially begun collective bargaining! That`s our plan for Labor Day 2020. It`s not perfect, but it`s flexible at a time when we don`t know what`s going to last next week. NOTE OF ANOTHER: IF POSSIBLE (depending on the restrictions at that time), we would encourage carpooling. While we understand that the carbon footprint we make with a caravan is greater than we would like, it would be great if people could share trips with each other.
If the social distance rules have eased sufficiently by that date, we can help you facilitate an online form for transportation offers/requests. If we can install grass chairs with our cars and be socially away from people in chairs, we are covered. When a second wave hits and we limit ourselves to our cars, listen to the radio and have a picnic with the family or a friend, we are covered. We are pleased to strengthen the discussion on the importance of sustainable federal funding for local public transportation. In addition, we are strengthening links between workers and drivers in order to build solidarity and protect local public transport for the future. We will not be able to maintain a perfect and intact line for the entire course. All right! Have fun with the group you`re having fun in. Blow your horns and play music. Let a big piece of Hamilton know that we`ll bring them a Labour Day to the Parade this year! If you are going to decorate your cars, please respect the fact that other traffic may be around you during the ride, so that things stick too far through the windows or trunk can be dangerous.
