Meeting on Wednesday September 1, at the Raynham/ Taunton Park

At our meeting on Wednesday September 1, at the Raynham/ Taunton Park

The membership VOTED UNANIMOUSLY to stand down and NOT SIGN the 2010-2011 Snow and Ice Contract offered by MassDOT and published on it’s web site.

The contract is one sided and unfair, the Department has made it impossible for any contractor to make an informed decision with in the short period of time between publication of the document and its submission deadline!

The contract shows excessive financial cuts in many areas including the loss of payment for liquid saddle tanks, loss of payment of 11′ plows on some class codes, loss of 2/3 of fuel adjustment surcharge, and virtually no seniority or fair rotation!

It is for these and many more reasons why Senator Marc Pacheco and several other State Legislators have banded together to work with MassDOT and bring them to the bargaining table with our group.

Some eqipment will take as much as a $25.00 per hour cut in pay by returning without the upgrades, and only $6.00 per hour increase by adding approximately $35,000 in closed loop ground speed control, wing plows, 11′ plows, and liquid saddle tanks. Contact your State Representative and Senator today and ask them to contact Sen. Pacheco
