Duquesne Club 2022 Bargaining: Report #2

The CWA Local 13500 Bargaining Committee reports:

Bargaining resumed with the Club Tuesday September 20th. The Club passed proposals on Wages, premium pay and 401K. We rejected all these proposals as inadequate and stressed that we expect a compensation package that recognizes and rewards our union members work at the Club.

The Club also responded to our Medical premium proposals. We also rejected that offer and presented a responsible counter.

On a more positive note, we entered discussions on providing, for the first time, a 26-week Short Term Disability Benefit, paid by the Club. We continue to explore this and how this benefit would work if agreed to.

Bargaining will continue throughout the week. Both parties are working hard to come to a settlement. Of course, things can change quickly, and we will provide updates as we move along.

In the meantime, let your management know that you are following the bargaining process and that you need and expect significant improvements to maintain and improve your personal financial position and work life.

Thank you for all the support you have shown towards the Bargaining Committee.
