Despite the difficulties posed by COVID-19, Local 1006A members at Ryder Truck Rental have ratified their first union contract.
As more cities mandate the use of masks within indoor public spaces, it's vital that our members know what their rights are.
During the pandemic, the critical work of negotiating improvements for 1006A members continues with workers at Tremblett's YIG ratifying a new union contract with gains.
“It doesn’t make sense to cancel pandemic pay when we’re still experiencing a pandemic situation,” said National President Meinema during the committee meeting. “Pandemic pay must stay, must become permanent, and actually, must be increased.”
