CWA Local 14759/M-21 Fighting for Fairness in Utah
Salt Lake City Mailers Local 14759/M-21 is once again in contentious negotiations with MediaOne of Utah. MediaOne of Utah is the joint advertising, circulation and production arm of The Salt Lake Tribune and Deseret News, Utah’s largest daily newspapers. The current collective bargaining agreement expired on August 23, 2014. The Local and the company have been operating under a contract extension that expired at the end of January. Local 14759/M-21 President Heather Porter explained that the company is proposing oppressive concessions from workers. “Initially they asked for 20 percent across the board wage cuts,” Porter said. “When we said no way, they came back with a proposal that included an 11 percent wage reduction, elimination of the second highest pay code, and an almost 18 percent reduction in pay for new hires.” Read More...

Union Plus Program: The AFL-CIO supports a benefits program for all union members which includes a union credit card, loan program, motor club, dental program, ear care plan, etc.

Negotiated Pension Plan: Begun in 1967, the Plan now has over 750 participating employers, pays benefits to more than 22,000 participants and has over $900 million in assets.

Wages: Studies have shown union wages to be 20-30 percent higher than non-union pay.

Contract benefits: Union workers generally receive more and better fringe benefits- paid leave, life and heath insurance, retirement savings and pensions, etc.

Job security: most contracts secure against arbitrary transfers, demotions and unreasonable schedule changes.

Does Your Company Market Its Label?

Over a century ago, when the labor movement began to aggressively promote union labeled products to show buyers the difference that trained, skilled and dedicated union workers make in product quality the printing “bug” was already in widespread use.
