Brothers and Sisters,
As you may know, our contract in Rhode Island is slated for renewal at the end of this month.
Despite unprecedented challenges posed by COVID-19, the majority of our Rhode Island members are still on the job, continuing to work on many of the region’s biggest projects. We want to ensure that our hard work is fully recognized even in these difficult times. For that reason, we’re pushing for a safe, in-person meeting with key management stakeholders this week to hopefully negotiate and finalize the best deal.
More details will come in the following days and a full update will be provided after the meeting.
Thank you for all you do to make our union strong.
