Pending Federal Lawsuit

Federal Lawsuit Pending
After farther discussion we have decided to file a federal law suit to enforce the contract and reverse the Governor’s decision to withhold contractual increases.  As many of you are aware, the Governor initiated a pay freeze last Friday that sought to withhold contractual increases for many of our members.  We’ve taken administrative actions, including the Unfair Labor Practice, grievances and letters demanding discussions on unilateral changes to the contract.  After discussions with other affected unions, we have determined that the next appropriate step would be court action. We will be filing a suit in Federal Court on or about Monday of next week. 
Defend Your Union Contract
On Tuesday July 12, 2011, ISEA, Laborers’ Local 2002 members are invited to join the informational picket lines to protest the Governor’s unwarranted actions against collective bargaining members.  More information will follow on Monday.
