Contract Ratification Results

Mar 23, 2013 (12:26:11)
I am pleased to announce that the APL, POOL and STU Units ratified agreements extending their existing contracts through June 30, 2017 on March 15, 2013.  Longevity has been suspended for 2013 and 2014 and will be revisited after the Library millage is voted upon.   A wage re-opener is in effect for years 2014, 2015 and 2016.  In addition, a Letter of Agreement for each of the units passed detailing a Union Security agreement for 10 years.   
The contracts were approved by the Detroit Library Commission at their meeting held March 19, 2013 and went into effect March 20, 2013.  
I want to express my thanks to Unit Chairs Sue Nairn, Krystal Booker and Rick Sowinski for their hard work that moved this unprecedented ratification forward in such a timely manner. And to each of their steward teams:  Janet Batchelder, Robbie Flowers and Mary Jo Vortkamp for APL, Roger Morton, Julie Fornell and Tracy Massey for APL and Joe Flake for STU. Without their outreach efforts to the members, this could not have taken place.  
Thank you also to the members who attended and voted at the ratification meetings.  Due to circumstances, the notice was short and it was not possible for some to rearrange their schedules for that evening.  Little did I know that the vote would take place in advance of the contracts expiring when I committed to a vacation with a friend and her son in early December of last year!  I genuinely regret having to miss this historic vote. 
I want to express a special note of gratitude to Tiffani Simon, VP.  Tiffani has been involved in every step of the process and because of this was able to chair the ratification meeting held at the Region last week with such success.  Her support and leadership has been invaluable to me as President. 
This Local owes a debt of gratitude to Tony Feyers, our International representative at UAW Region 1.  Tony has been a constant source of encouragement, support and information, particularly regarding the changing legislation in Michigan.  
Unit chairs expect to post the text of the contracts on our webpage soon and distribute hard copy of the new contracts to members in a timely manner.  Please continue to contact your Unit steward with any questions, concerrns or challenges to your contract.  
In Solidarity.  Laurie Stuart, President, LU 2200
