TO: Contractors Members Signatory to the MITA/Operating Engineers -local 324 Underground Agreements
FROM: Michael A. Nystrom, Executive Vice President
RE: Collective Bargaining Agreement Negotiations
The current Underground Construction Agreement between MITA and the Operating Engineers - Local 324 expires at the end of August, 2010. Therefore, I have notified the union of our intent to open negotiations prior to September 1. With this in mind, I am looking for input from you.
If MITA holds your company’s Power of Attorney for this contract and you or a representative from your company would like to participate on the negotiations committee, please let me know either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 517-347-8336.
Secondly, if you have suggested changes to the contract language, please forward those to my attention, and we will make every effort to implement these suggestions during the negotiations process.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
