The week of March 26, 2018, your Negotiations Committee met with PSA management in Dayton, Ohio. For this session your committee was Marty Dellinger and Alicia Brockers assisted by AFA Staff Negotiator Suzanne Balzer. Due to a personal situation, MEC President Lee Wilkes was unable to attend but we consulted her via phone. Representing PSA was Keith Stamper, Deb Hoke, Brookelen Resides, Brenton Yeager, and Tony Bralich of F&H Solutions.
We had prepared counter proposals to management’s last proposals of January 2018. This counter included:
- Travel Expenses
- Sick Leave
- Leaves of Absence
- Hours of Service and Scheduling
Before our session ended, management presented counter proposals to Uniforms, Leaves of Absence and Sick Leave. We were able to reach a Tentative Agreement (TA) on Uniforms and have narrowed our issues in Leaves of Absence and Sick Leave.
We continue to make it clear what are your top priorities! We must see vastly improved wages and increased flexibility-our quality of life! We are in the most complicated areas of the Contract and progress may take some time but that is what may be needed to reach the agreement you have earned and you deserve.
We have no session scheduled for April due to scheduling conflicts but have tentative dates in May and confirmed sessions in June and July.
Again we appreciate your emails and calls of support! Proudly wear your red AFA pin!
OUR CONTRACT! OUR TIME! OUR TURN!
