As front line workers during the
Covid-19 pandemic, we risked our own health and made tremendous sacrifices at work--even extending our contract expiration--to help the company weather the crisis. Now is the time to stand together for the improvements we need and deserve!
The first step toward winning a fair contract is to stay informed. Our Bargaining Committees will share regular, accurate updates via email. Share this message with co-workers who may not already be on our email list.
We will also post information on our Facebook page and at american-agents.org.
We urge you to avoid unauthorized social media sources that may spread inaccurate information and rumors. Get the correct information first-hand from your local union officers, stewards, and the above online sources.
Together, we will fight for and win a fair contract that reflects our hard work and sacrifices over the last two years!
