TEAMSTERS LOCAL UNION 229 WINS ORGANIZING CAMPAIGN AT SCRANTON COUNSELING CENTER!!
Good things continue to happen at Local Union 229. On July 6, 2009 Teamsters Local Union 229 successfully completed an Organizing Campaign for approximately 300 employees who work for the Scranton Counseling Center.
The Scranton Counseling Center is a private, not for profit company, founded in 1947, whose mission statement commits them to promote wellness and recovery by providing an environment which is considerate of and sensitive to the unique personal and cultural attributes of those they serve, and which empowers them to make choices about their lives, pursue their personal goals, dignity and confidentiality. Without a doubt, these are the professionals who go to work everyday and quietly contribute to the health of our community.
Negotiations started out slow when the Company arrived for the first meeting with “empty pockets and their we don’t have any money attitude”. Our Negotiating committee was comprised of dedicated and well informed members who were already immune to this tactic, they had heard this too many times before. Meeting after meeting our Committee continued to conduct themselves both intelligently and professionally when presenting the proposals of our new membership, finally adding a newly acquired option… A Strike Deadline of September 21, 2009. What a difference a day makes…On August 24, 2009 the members of the Scranton Counseling Center enthusiastically ratified their first two year contract which contained a first year wage increase of $0.48 per hour, retroactive pay, stability in the areas of healthcare, pension, holidays, and vacations, all backed up by a strong grievance procedure.
On behalf The Executive Board of Teamsters Local Union 229 I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the employees of the Scranton Counseling Center and their Negotiating Committee. Without their desire and determination none of this could have been possible.
TEAMSTERS LOCAL UNION 229 WELCOMES OUR NEW MEMBERS FROM THE SCRANTON COUNSELING CENTER!!!
