At this time, I would like to reflect on the reason that we, as American Workers, can have the ability to sit across the table from our employer and bargain for a meaningful and fair contract. We can do that because we are free.
We have that right because generations before us stood up and fought for that right and the very existence of this country. They did it for us - the future generations.
We honor those past generations, who fought for us, every time we excercise the rights that we have as Americans. One of those rights is the right to ORGANIZE and bargain for a contract.
We need to really look at our own negotiations - where we are at the table trying to make improvements for all of the workers in the MCC Newburgh plant - and we need to thank those who came before us and protected that right and our freedom.
Our negotiations will start back up again during the week of March 7
Thank you to everyone who has given us their support and encouragement.
Also, if you have a subject on your mind, please pass it to your reps or steward.
Stay solid, Stay strong.
