Local 1994 and the bargaining team is currently in negotiations with Athena’s attorneys.
You might receive a letter and email from Athena about “raises.” The Union and the bargaining team did not agree to the raises as we believe that you all deserve more. For that reason, the Union has filed an Unfair Labor Practice (ULP). Athena should not have implemented any new economic provisions without members’ approvals and a ratified Tentative Agreement. The Union and the team will continue to negotiate with your employer but may need to take more aggressive measures.
With that said, we ask that you stand in solidarity with your Union as we fight to get you raises that reflect your hard work and dedication.
Another priority at the bargaining table is to require the company to include us in orientations to reduce confusion.
If you have any questions or need help, please see your shop stewards (listed below), or call the union office and ask for Alejandro or Ryan (contact info below).
It’s YOUR UNION, YOU MAKE IT WORK!
