80,000 hits on this site! That is amazing. Every one of those hits and words written on this site had to do with you - the can makers at Newburgh MCC. 80,000 hits watching what the workers at a plant in Newburgh would decide to do when faced with a choice to have a voice or not.
Very soon, we will go to the negotiating table for every one of those workers - to help them have a voice and a contract for their time and their labor.
The people at that negotiating table will be the same people who make the cans.
The best news of all is that those people respect their employer and their job, in addition to themselves. Now they will find out who else really feels the same way they do.
During the campaign, we had meetings on both sides and both the union and the company representatives claimed to have your best interest at heart. We both claimed we truly cared about your future and we both said that we would do everything we could to make it a great future.
Next week we both go to the negotiating table. IBEW Local 363 is going to that negotiating table with fairness and your benefit in mind.
If the company comes to the negotiating table with the same mindset, it will be the start of a great relationship and you will all gain from that relationship. Let's look forward to that happening!
Stay strong, stay solid and support yourselves. Become part of the movement.
