The following was issued to SaultOnline.com Wednesday morning from the executive of USW Local 2251
On March 14th, the members of Local Union 2251 clearly gave their Negotiating Committee the direction that they are to be involved directly in negotiations that affect them.
That direct was given by a 96% majority vote. They clearly indicated they would not be put in a position to merely ratify a completed Memorandum of Agreement. They expect to be consulted where concessions are being contemplated.
Signed: Mike Da Prat, President
