     The Monthly Membership meeting on Monday, December 4th, 2017 was one full of passion and productivity. The revised and corrected By-Laws were presented to the general membership for discussion/approval and some empassioned debates were involved. In the end the By-Laws were approved with a few changes. The next step will be to send the By-Laws to the Interantional Union for approval and await their decision.

THE NEXT GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING IS ON MONDAY, DECEMBER 4TH, 2017 AT 3:50PM AT THE UNION HALL AT 1414 NORTH MEMORIAL DRIVE.

 

The unemployment claims for the week ending November 25th, 2017 didn't work again. If you haven't already, you'll have to call the unemployment line and talk to a representative to get the issue resolved. Be ready for a long wait to get ahold of a representative as some employees have reported wait times of over 3 hours (my personal wait was about 2 hours and 40 minutes to get ahold of a person).

When several people tried to file their unemployment claims on Sunday, November 5th, 2017, there was a issue with choosing the proper options to qualify. Today (11/6/17) the HR staff reached out to the folks at the Oklahoma Unemployment Division and they were told that the problem would be fixed by Tuesday (11/7/17). If you need to file your weekly claim and want to do it on the website, try again tomorrow. Here's the web address:

Guy is currently progressing slowly, but still remains in critical condition. All of our hearts and prayers go out to Guy and his family and friends.

Navistar's computer systems had a malfunction and they were unable to take our union dues out of our checks on the first paycheck of the month. They will come out on the paycheck on the 19th. This wasn't the fault of Local 5010 in any way shape or form, but be aware of that deduction next week.
