Scheduling Update, But No Ratification Vote Set Yet: Merck West Point/USW Local #10-86

Just as it all unfolded six years ago, it is taking a moment — to get the scriveners’ small changes into the relevant Memorandum of Understanding, on a renewed and amended collective bargaining agreement, here.

So — while there are two union meetings set for next week, at this point neither of them will be for the purpose of ratification, and formally ending all threat of a strike. But it is highly unlikely now — that the deal won’t get done. And even more remote that the USW would call a work stoppage. Here’s the latest from the Local USW:

. . . .The USW Local 10-00086 Membership Meeting will be held Monday, May 9th, at the Towamencin Fire Hall on Bustard Rd. in Kulpsville, Pa. Meeting begins promptly at 5PM. THIS IS NOT THE RATIFICATION MEETING.

The ratification meeting is pending. We are awaiting a copy of the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) from the Company. When that is in hand we will distribute to membership and give them time to look over the changes. Also, we are looking to post electronically on this website. When all of the above is complete a ratification date will be announced.

The monthly Executive Board Meeting will be held on site, May 9th, at 2PM in the Maine/Montana Rooms. Continue to stay tuned to this website, our 45 Facebook pages and our USW App for further updates.

In Solidarity. . . .

Good progress, that. Onward, on a perfect Spring noon-time — for a city walk-about. . . and so, I’ll indulge. Smile. . . .
