Dear Sisters and Brothers of IBEW Local 984,

After a long winter season spring has finally arrived. Now is the time to start enjoying those fun outdoor activities. Pay close attention to small children coming and going from school. I hope you and your family will be enjoying this wonderful spring weather.                                               

  • Local 984's 2016 membership party was held October 28, 2016. There was a very good turnout and a lot of fun. I hope everyone who attended had a great time. I would like to thank those who planned the event: Dianne Whitten, Annette Wilcox, Robin Woodford and Barb Chase.
  • WRPS drug and alcohol policy negotiations are currently on hold.
  • WRPS HPT Trainee class began December 12, 2016. They are still testing and making good progress.
  • Our total membership numbers are approximately 735 members as of March 2017.
  • The Sentinel Access Program will be purchased this year, the interfaces will be built and a pilot program will possibly start this fiscal year. This will eventually replace the ACES and ARACKS access control programs.
  • Beryllium Soil Sampling arbitration between Local 984 and the Steelworkers was held February 28, 2017. A decision from the arbitrator is due in mid-June.
  • Since November 2016 there has been one member terminated, three members given 30 day unpaid suspensions, one member given a five day unpaid suspension and two members given a three day unpaid suspension. As you can see our local has had our fair share of discipline. Watch what you do, follow procedures and stay safe.
  • Please call in or notify your steward of any change of address.

Grievances 15A-058, 15A-045-WRPS, terminations, unfortunately the union lost both of these arbitrations.

The union was successful in negotiating three settlement agreements. Grievance 15A-071-WRPS, termination, 15A-073-WRPS, three week unpaid suspension and 16A-039-WRPS, shift reassignment out of seniority. For specifics on these settlement agreements please call the union hall.                                                             

Local 984 is grateful to all our members and our local union leadership for the hard work, dedication, and loyalty you demonstrate every day of the year. I know that our success depends on the efforts of each and every one of you

Local 984 wishes to extend our deepest and most sincere condolences to the family of our recently departed member, Bill Johnson.

 

Fraternally,

 

Danny K Daniels    

Business Manager / Financial Secretary
