Union Update 5/24/18

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Union has received a number of calls regarding the packet that we recently sent to all of you.  The main questions we are getting are regarding the membership authorization and Dues authorization form. Below is a brief summary on why JPE is asking you to sign these forms and sign them now.  Just to be clear, the Judicial Professional Employees Union is NOT asking for a dues increase and by signing the cards your dues will NOT be increased.

As many of you know, Unions and Union member’s rights are and continue to be under attack.  There are some (in Hartford and Washington D.C.) that are attacking your ability to collectively bargain contracts, pay and benefits.  In signing the membership / dues cards you are showing that you are reaffirming your commitment and belief that being part of a Union is far better than not being in a Union.  This was reinforced by the Chief Court Administrator Judge Carroll’s letter dated 12/28/17. In addition, in signing the form and filling out your contact information, you are helping us verify that JPE has the most up to date contact information for you. This helps us to get you important information in a timely manner.

HERE IS SOME OF WHAT YOU RECEIVED AS A UNION MEMBER.

Longevity payment in July and maintained throughout the contract

$2000.00 bonus in July for 2018

3.5% in July of 2019 and AI’S

3.5% in July of 2020 and AI’s

Six-Year Contact /No Layoffs

A separate SEBAC vote

Transfer Langue

 HERE IS WHAT YOU GET NOT BEING IN A UNION

No longevity payments

No cost of living increases or AI’s

Pay more than union members for benefits

Please take a minute and sign the forms to help us continue to fight to keep the benefits we have.

In Solidarity,

 

Carmen
