LOCAL 249 TO CONVERT 44 TEMPORARY WORKERS TO FULL TIME
The Local 249 Leadership Team has been working for months in a fight for our temporary workers. Finally, we have been notified that KCAP will begin the process of converting 44 of our Temporary Workers to In-Progression Employees.
In the next week, these members will be sent to Labor Relations and fill out their paperwork for the conversion.
The members who will be converted will be based on the total number of weeks worked. The list we have been sent shows the members began working as a temporary employee at KCAP from March 2, 2016 to March 14, 2016.
While we recognize this isn’t the total number we would like to see converted, this is finally a start to the process. Local 249 Leadership will continue to work hard in an effort to get more of our temporary workers converted.
Finally, we would like to congratulate the 44 that will be converted to In-Progression for their hard work and dedication.
