The UAW Local 6000 is facing an immediate and major threat: Senate Bill 280 if passed in the Michigan House of Representatives on or about December 1, 2015, could mean all Labor/ Management issues must be handled after hours or on the weekends. Dealing with the grievance process also would have to be addressed after hours or on the weekend. This would mean Chief Stewards would no longer be able to claim 4 hours on their time sheets to work on grievances. The legislation bans any Michigan public employer for paying for any type of union leave.
This is disruptive and not efficient government, we MUST reach out to the Michigan House today! Tell them this misguided bill must be stopped we cannot allow those who would interfere with the collective bargaining process to get 56 vote in the House. The bill has already passed the Michigan Senate 20 to 17.
Tell the representatives that SB 280 is DISRUPTIVE and not EFFICIENT government. This legislation interferes with the collective bargaining process and does not help Michigan citizens. To reach your own House Rep. simply go to www.legislature.mi.gov.
