In the event a special meeting should be necessary between now and September, I will post it on this website. Also, continue checking this website for any updates that may occur. Have a safe and enjoyable summer.

Fraternally,

Bill Iacullo, President

Dear Member,

 

As you may be aware, we have recently been awarded a positive decision from the Illinois Education Labor Relations Board regarding engineers being paid for increments as part of our present contract. This having been said, I have attached a form that you must fill out and fax back as soon as possible.

This will cover any increment that was due to you as per terms of the contract page 49. Even you no longer work at the school if you worked at any time during the period of July 01, 2012 to present you need to fill out this form and send it back to the union. You attention is needed as this is time sensitive.

WE HONOR ALL VETERANS FOR THEIR SERVICE TO OUR COUNTRY AND FOR THE FREEDOM WE ENJOY TODAY.

I WOULD ESPECIALLY LIKE TO THANK OUR MEMBERS WHO SERVED AND HONOR THEM TODAY AND EVERYDAY. YOU ARE OUR HEROES.

FRATERNALLY,

WILLIAM E. IACULLO, PRESIDENT

 

VETERANS DAY

Engineers,

Please note, the new evaluation booklet you received yesterday was part of our negotiations with CPS as outlined in our contract. It is also part of an in service training you are to receive either individually or as group from your FM and or LFM. If you have not been in serviced, I am sure it will be occurring soon. If by  the end of next week you have not received this training please let me know via email, and give me the FM’s name and your school as well as the LFM’s name. All Fm’s and LFM’s were trained in this new process. Your Vice President Denis Lechowicz and my self attended those same training sessions, so we both heard everything that your FM and LFM were trained  about in this new process.

Fraternally,

Bill Iacullo
