MCC Newburgh Workers: Soon To Be Part Of IBEW Local 363
It looks as though the managers are starting to rev up a little and approaching some of you. For those who have the tapes - let em roll. For those who have gone out and purchased your own - great idea! To the managers who are being directed to approach the workers - be careful what you do and how you do it. Be even more careful of what you say.
Why do that? Why intimidate the people you work with? Why is it such a big deal if we have a union in the Newburgh plant? Especially IBEW Local 363 - we have a great reputation and great relationships with the employers of our members. There are other unions that also come under InbevAB - why can't we have the same? This is what the people want. This is what the people need to feel confident and stable.
The best thing that management can do right now is to pick up the phone and call Local 363. We are willing to meet and discuss what it is the people want. We are all looking to make this a win win for the company and the people who do the work there for the company.
Things are starting to move along now - everybody hold on tight and report ANY infractions. Everyone should keep a log book dated every day - it's a great record of events.
