Local 284 and it’s Negotiating Committees were able to reach Tentative Agreements for both Sygma Warehouse and Drivers simultaneously.
After strike authorization was provided by members from both units, Local 284 obtained wage increases of $2.30/hour (Warehouse) and 11% (Drivers) over the life of the agreement in addition to Ratification bonuses for both.
The Negotiating Committees for both groups maintained the current quality health insurance with very minimal increases over the life of the agreement for members and their families.
Both Agreements contained NO concessions to the Company and several positive language changes for the membership.
Congratulations to Sygma workers, Local 284, and the power of solidarity!
Teamsters Local 284 welcomes you, the employees of Logan Elm Local School District, after prevailing in the SERB Representation Election. Teamsters Local 284, with great support from a distinct majority of potential voters, prevailed over “no Representative”, 21-12.
The support and active participation in the election drive carried the day, and will, no doubt, lead to a successful contract negotiation and better wages and working conditions.
After the tally, there is a 10-day objection period in the event that either party wishes to register a legal challenge to election results with SERB. While that is not likely, SERB cannot act until that period has expired. Barring any election objections, the tally will be approved at the next Board meeting, October 10, 2019, and Teamsters Local 284 will be certified by SERB as the exclusive bargaining representative. After the Board’s order of certification is mailed, Local 284 will file a Notice to Negotiate and schedule a meeting with you to discuss contract proposals. Representatives for the Union and the School Board will then schedule dates for negotiations.
We proudly look forward to representing you vigorously and fighting for better wages and working conditions! Again, thank you for your confidence, trust and support.
If you have more questions about the process, feel free to contact Mark Vandak or Brian Barrowman at 614-228-0727, x101 or x104.
