August/Sept Connector is out a bit late.
I apologize many of you received the newsletter in the mail. Normally, I put this online right away, but it slipped my mind. Here it is for those who have not seen it. Click HERE.
Labor Day was a great success. The Labor Day Parade is a tradition we have always participated in and the last couple of years after COVID we returned to our Hall for our picnic and Years of Service Pin Ceremony. There were over 100 people at the Hall to celebrate. Thank you to all that came to celebrate OUR day.
Allocation for raise was decided.
Last night was the allocation for the final $2.50 raise of this contract. We will be negotiating next year for a new contract. Thank you to all that voted. The break down of the raise was as follows:
$1.00 to the Mid America POC
.72 cents to the Mid America SMA
.15 cents to the PAC Fund
.63 cents to the Check
I will post the packages soon.
