On June 28th, 2019 we bid a cheerful goodbye to our brother and friend Anthony Cameron.
We wish him success in Pittsburgh as he returns home after accepting a transfer back to PIT.
Anthony has served the members in many roles over the years, including president; we will miss him.

KNOW THE FACTS
According to Article 3 Paragraph M on page 5:
‘The Company shall have sole jurisdiction…over the management and operations…and the direction of its working force.’
Which means if management give a directive or puts out a mando that is a violation, it does not make it right, but the employee must follow that directive unless it is a safety concern/violation. YOU always have the option to voice your concern to management. If there is a contract violation we always try to resolve the violation before filing a grievance.
This is to address an email that was sent to management and CSCs from a member last week. There were also rumors/comments stating that members would not follow management directions or would leave the work floor.
The contract is to be followed by both members and management. We have learned that mando violations are occurring in other stations as well. It is important that we file grievances for all violations. When a grievance is filed, it shows written proof of contract violations as we move it through the process.
Local 13301 did not negotiate this contract but the members nationwide voted and ratified it. We all need to follow the joint contract, both members and management.
We have an open door policy. Members are welcome to call the office or stop by with all concerns.
YOU ARE THE UNION.
WE HAVE TO COME TOGETHER IN UNITY.
READ THE CONTRACT.
