For all the members of IAM Local 2525, on Friday Ocotber 11th, polls will be open from 2:30pm to 7:30pm in order to elect two Bargaining Committee members for the CNH plant and one District 5 Delegate. Please make time to attend and vote! Also, our local lodge meeting will be held at the regular time that day, 3:15pm!
Congratulations goes out to the union reps who represented Matt Heiden, an employee that works at the CNH 4WD Tractor Plant in Fargo, ND who was unjustly terminated in October of 2012. In a significant ruling, Arbitrator Torres ruled that CNH unjustly terminated Matt and ordered the company to reinstate him WITH FULL BACK PAY AND BENEFITS TO INCLUDE HIS SENIORITY! This arbitration victory is a testament to the importance of having a union with a collective bargaining agreement with a grievance and arbitration procedure to hold the company accountable. UNION MEMBERS, BE PROUD!
