Step in the right direction. Now let's get the pay imbalance addressed. Props though

Maybe they can get one of the trained union guys to inspect a little better. pretty bad when your new truck arrives with no paint on top of the fenders that a blind man could see. Funny I have never had one of my Tundra's ever back to the dealer for ANYTHING......and its already got a recall......

Congratulations to everyone!

wish Local 598 would do the same. Congrats 249!

Yeh .50 cent raise and still takes 8 years really

Good they need to just hire people on full time right off the bat

Great work

Now if we can just get past this TFT and in progression designation and just do what the UAW creed says. Equal pay for equal work. Get rid of the tiers. Until we make these jobs sought after as they were years ago, there is gonna be a hard time convincing people that this is the job for them. Fight for the equal pay equal work motto and you will see your absenteeism decline. You won't have to hire hundreds every week. You won't have to hold repeated job fairs. Cost of living is going up. So should these UAW wages. Take care of the new hires. They will take care of you.

Congratulations

I'm so excited! Thank you
