Unemployment / Out of Work List
Just a reminder to working members to make sure that you get on the out of work list-on call, when you call in your unemployment claim the first of each month. Not doing so, could cause you a delay in getting your checks.
N.W. District Council
President Gregg Gibeau, Organizer Tony Kimbrough, and I attended a combined meeting of the Northwest and Western States District Councils. The meeting was also attended by our General President Kinsey Robinson. The general theme of the meeting was a shortage of manpower all over the west coast. There was a lot of good discussion on how to make the best use of the union members we have in our Locals. There also was some focus on similar pensions and health care coverages. We also discussed strategies for stripping the experienced non-union workers.
