Last weekend the Labor Council held its annual Awards in Excellence Dinner honoring Labor Leader Lisa Fair (ATU #1309) and Union of the Year Teamsters #542 (Secretary-Treasurer Jaime Vasquez) and a number others who work hard every day to strengthen our labor movement. Stay tuned for a full rundown of the event (including pictures!) in our next update.
In the meantime, let’s talk about elections. We are just six weeks away from the June 7 vote on Prop I and several of our Labor Council endorsed candidate races. If you haven’t already signed up to walk a neighborhood or volunteer at a phone bank - NOW is the time. Here are three easy ways you get involved this weekend:
Coalition Union Brothers and Sisters,
Congratulations! We showed what Coalition Union solidarity looks like.
Because we raised our voices—50,000-strong in the Southern California region—each full-time Coalition union-represented employee will receive upwards of $900 in our settlement of the 2015 payout for the Performance Sharing Program (PSP).
This is a much better solution than the employer’s original offer of a “special payment” of $215 dollars per employee in lieu of the payout for the PSP—which we bargained in the National Agreement to recognize and reward the hard work that our frontline puts into KP’s growth and reputation for excellent care and service.
