Several weeks ago, Jeff Pugh brazenly announced that CAS had the cash to give us all raises. Incoming president Mike Boles stated that he wanted to have this new CBA in place by the beginning of August because: " the hard working men and women at SFO deserve nothing less."
What they didn't tell you was that the money for your raises was coming from the "givebacks" that the company wants to implement.
Boles wants you to focus on the 2.1% wage increase and nothing else. He doesn't want you to focus on "double time" pay when you work on a holiday. He doesn't want you to focus on the 15 minute break per 4 hours of work. (The employees who work 10 hours lose a 15 minute break!)
He doesn't want you to focus on the cost to you if you get admitted to a hospital. The first 1,000 dollars comes out of your pocket, and then you pay 20% of any additional charges up to a maximum of 3,000 dollars a year -- for a single employee, that is. The maximum is 6,000 dollars for an employee with a family.
All this comes at the same time that they want you to show " world class customer service." With the atmosphere that this company has created, can they really expect any employee to smile?
If this offer doesn't show you just how this company really feels about their employees, what will?
This company is stooping to new lows in their effort to increase their "profit" margin!
