President/Business Manager’s Report


On May 7 I attended the NE Unit meeting in Menands.  On May 9 I was in Buffalo for the Western Unit meeting.  On May 10 we had the Tier 1 Safety meeting in Syracuse.  

May 14 I attended the Work Issues meeting and May 15 we heard 3rd step grievances.  
Over the next few weeks much of my time will be spent in negotiations for the Pre Medicare eligible retirees.  These meetings will be held in  NYC.  We have to make changes to their plans as costs will in 2020 are expected to pierce the caps set in previous contract bargaining sessions.  Hopefully we will complete this in early July.
In Solidarity,


Barbara Carson
President/Business Manager
