Revised breaks proposal.

After meeting with UAW head office on Tuesday about their proposal to change your paid meal breaks, we’ve just heard back from them.

At the meeting we said the change as it stands was unacceptable. While the current arrangements may be haphazard at times, that didn’t justify taking away everyone’s paid meals and changing rosters and contracts to boot.

They agreed to consider our position and we’ve just received their new, revised proposal.

We are currently working through what the new proposal will mean for you.

At first glance, it looks like they’ve come to the table with some changes for members who were permanent before November 2019, but they haven’t agreed to everything we wanted.

Well done for sticking together and forcing UAW to make the change! We will get in touch next week as soon as we have a better picture of the revised proposal.

Keep an eye out for our next update, and in the meantime keep up the good work!
