Quarterly Arbitration Assessment - August 2017


Brothers and Sisters,

Arbitration, the ability to arbitrate, and the means to arbitrate are vital tools in the Union's arsenal of defense and quality representation of its MEMBERS.  Arbitration is one of the two strongest stances a Union may take in any disagreement or dispute.  Arbitration may be invoked in a wide range of labor/workers issues - contract interpretations, unfair labor disputes, and most common are unfair, unreasonable and unjust discipline and terminations.

Although arbitration is a powerful ally in Our fight, arbitration is a very expensive procedure and process to all Unions.  However without the means readily at hand to arbitrate, makes us a vulnerable Union.

Our arbitration costs are funded through quarterly assessments pursuant to the BYLAWS of ATU 1700.

Our Quarterly Assessment Amount: $65958.18 divided by 2355 active members equal $28.00 per member X .75 = $21.00 per member in August 2017.

Fraternally.
