Happy Thanksgiving Local 94

Thanksgiving is here again. There is no better time to think of the reasons why you are thankful over this long holiday weekend. As union members, there is a lot to be thankful for like our wages and benefits. We can also be thankful in knowing that thanks to our union and the solidarity of our friends and coworkers we will be working in a safe workplace that allows us to go home and see our families every night. As you sit with your family on Thursday, remember to give thanks for this hard earned privilege and remember that your family is why we fight.

Get Out and Vote on Tuesday

On Tuesday, voters across New Jersey will head to the polls to vote for a new Governor. After 8 years of Governor Chris Christie, we will finally have a new Governor. It is no secret that Christie was not very friendly to unions during his tenure, which makes your vote on Tuesday all the more important. I believe that we have the choice on Tuesday to elect a real friend to labor, Phil Murphy. He has reached out to the labor community and marched with us at the Plainfield Labor Day Parade. With Murphy in Trenton, we will have a Governor that works with us, not against us.

Happy Labor Day

This Monday, we celebrate you the worker. For one day every year, we thank the workers who work hard every day. At Local 94, we thank you for the hard work and professionalism that you show daily. While our work can be dangerous, you work hard to always meet and exceed the high standards that are set for you.  

Working Hard for You

While we are only two months into the new year, Local 94 has been extremely busy.  As you will read below, we won a major organizing campaign at Linden Cogen. I would like to take this opportunity to welcome the 39 new members to our union.  This campaign took a lot of organizing from both within the union and within the workplace.  Great job to everyone involved.   We have also officially gotten our 2 Line Clearance Tree Trimmers contracts ratified. This is a 3 year agreement that provides a 3.3% increase for each year of the agreement.

Happy Holidays Local 94

Message from Business Manager Bud Thoman
 
2016 was a busy year for Local 94.  This year we settled a 4 year contract with PSEG as well as a 3 year contract with the Line Clearance Tree Contractors. These contracts will provide labor peace for our members for the next few years. 
 

Happy Thanksgiving Local 94

Thanksgiving is the time of year that we join together with our family and friends to share a hearty meal and appreciate the important things in life.  Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to our union family for all the work that you do. Our labor movement will always have battles to fight, but it is because of your dedication and persistence that we continue to forge forward.
