DOR – Labor Management Report – June 2011

Dear Members,

Labor Management Meeting

The June Labor Management Meeting

The DOR Chapter held its Labor Management meeting on Wednesday June 1. For a change the meeting was held at the Local 509 office in Watertown. Among the topics covered were new hires and promotions. DOR expects to add about 10 new A/B positions in the very near future most coming at CSB. We should also see a number of D postings as many supervisors have well over seven employees to supervise. We again stressed the need for management to honor the transfer list prior to hiring off the street. If you are on the list and bypassed please contact a Union rep immediately.

Unfortunately there will be no retirement incentive program offered at DOR as we are down 90 FTE’s already and trying to add employees.

If you have any ideas on how to expedite customer contact and CREF resolution feel free to email Laurie McGrath with details.

A possible site in Taunton is being looked at for possible relocation of the Brockton office.

We will also be meeting in smaller groups to discuss job functions, training and telecommuting.

Next Labor / Management scheduled for 7/13 if you have issues that need attention contact a Chapter Board member.

We would like to thank our management team for making the trip to our Union office.

Enjoy the summer!
