Company Proposal Explanation


To all Local 3 Union members:

The Company proposals are posted on the Local 3 Facebook and the Local 3 website for you to review.  However the Company’s proposals can be confusing, so here is a brief description of what the Company is really looking to take away from you in just a few of their proposals.


Company Proposal # 2, seeks to remove protections from the Company flooding the floor with employees in Draw vs Commission Departments.


Company Proposal # 3, seeks to remove seniority rights for everyone and have layoffs based on a low PDR score for sales and non-selling.


Company Proposal # 5, seeks to remove vacation carry over to the next year, so you will either use your vacation each year or you LOSE IT.


Company Proposal # 6, seeks to remove compensatory days for working on the Holiday.


Company Proposal # 10, seeks to bypass progressive discipline and fire employees who are in deficit easier.


Company Proposal # 11, seeks to eliminate funding for the SWSP Medical & Sick Day Benefit fund.


Company Proposal # 13, seeks to remove protections for Union members against being converted from Base plus commission to Draw vs Commission.


Company Proposal # 15, seeks to DISCONTINUE your RETIREMENT pension plan.
