What's New at IBT 776
Recently Local 776 Members at Amsted Rail ratified a new four year agreement. At the conclusion of negotiations 82% of the eligible members voted on the tentative agreement, with 75% of those voting in favor of the pact.
Highlights of the new agreement include: steady wage increases each year of the agreement, no increases in health care costs for the first year; with a cap for any future increases, 20% increase in the company's 401k matching contribution, an increase in bereavement days off for immediate family members, significant improvements on vacation for new hires after one year, and an increase in the weekly accident and sickness pay benefit. In addition there was a signing bonus and an early wage increase for the three months prior to the agreement going into effect. The new agreement runs from April 26, 2020 thru April 27, 2024.
Local 776 Business Agent Ron Hicks would like to thank the negotiating committee for their dedication and hard work they displayed during the negotiations and to congratulate them for bringing a highly acceptable offer to the membership for a vote. Additionally Ron would like to thank the members who supported the committee and realized the committee negotiated the best agreement possible by showing their overwhelming support by voting on the tentative agreement.
Local 776, in conjunction with the IBT, is hosting a presentation pertaining to the history of the Teamsters Union. The best way to celebrate Teamster History is to learn about the actions and events of those who came before us, who stood together to form a Union and a Labor Movement that improved working and living standards for American families and communities. These workers fought for the rights and privileges that today most Americans take for granted.
Join us on March 7, 2020 for this informative and enlightening look at our Union. There will be a lunch intermission with food provided by Get Smok’d BBQ. Seats are filling fast, details can be found below to reserve yours!
See you on March 7th!
