Monthly Membership Meeting Notice:

Trimmers, Chain Saws, Action!
The quiet Saturday morning in the Union Hall’s neighborhood was broken on May 2nd by the sounds of hard working men, women, and machines. The scheduled Stewards meeting became spring clean up day for the grounds surrounding the Hall. Chain saws and trimmers took the place of contract books and grievance forms as the Officers and Business Agents, along with the Stewards, trimmed the bushes and trees surrounding the property that had become overgrown. They also removed a storage building that had been anchored to an outside wall of the Hall.
“On behalf of myself and all of the Officers and Business Agents I would like to thank the Stewards who came out and put in a hard day’s work helping clean up the property” commented Local President Ed Thompson. “Maintaining the grounds reflects a sense of pride in being Teamsters, we want everyone coming to our Union Hall to see that we are as proud of our Hall as we are as proud of our Teamster heritage”.

By a 2-1 margin Local 776 members working at the Pleasant Acres Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (formerly the York County Nursing Home) ratified a new four-year collective bargaining agreement. Business Agent Dave Vrona held three separate ratification meetings, which allowed all of the members an opportunity to review the changes prior to voting on the agreement.
Commented Local 776 President Ed Thompson; “Once we took office on January 1 2015 Business Agent Dave Vrona hit the ground running and resumed negotiations with York County on the contract for these members". "Working with an experienced and dedicated negotiating committee Dave was able to hammer out an agreement for the members that increases wages in each year of the agreement yet holds the line on escalating health insurance co-pays. "The previous agreement expired December 31, 2014; all wage increases are retroactive to January 1, 2015”.
