Message from the Secretary-Treasurer

Brothers and Sisters:

The recent JANUS decision regarding our public sector members has also raised many new issues for our Local that we in Connecticut have not had to experience in the past.  This Supreme Court decision allows public sector employees to choose to not become part of the union yet they receive all contractual benefits that are negotiated for our dues paying members.  This decision gives these employees the right to have the union forcibly arbitrate their issues and not have any obligation to pay dues or fees to the Local Union.  This decision is a direct attack on unions.  We will be keeping people informed as more clarifications of this decision come out.

I want to thank the Stewards and the Members for their patience over the past months.  I was spending large amounts of my time in the UPS National Negotiations as well as Co-chairing the New England Supplemental Negotiations with our Chairman, Sean O’Brien. The UPS contract is one of the largest private sector contracts in the nation.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at any time.

Fraternally yours,

Dave Lucas

Secretary-Treasurer
