ATU 1700 Quarterly Arbitration Assessment - December 2017

 

Brothers and Sisters,

ARBITRATION, the right to arbitrate, the ability to arbitrate and the means to arbitrate are vital tools in the Union's arsenal of strong tenacious 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 and legal litigation are an EXPENSIVE procedure and often long process to all Unions.  However, without the resources readily at hand to participate in the process, makes us a vulnerable Union.

Our arbitration and legal costs/expenses are borne through quarterly assessments pursuant to the Bylaws of ATU 1700.

Our Quarterly Assessment Amount:  $44,436.33 divided by 2355 active members equal $18.87 per member in December 2017.

Fraternally,

OUR UNION STANDS STRONG, AS ONE...ATU LOCAL 1700
