Dear members of Local 143 and 143B,
I am sure you have been hearing terms such as bankruptcy and take over of CPS. It is true the Governor is attempting to move towards those. At this time, though everything being said about this are rumors, speculations and opinions. Unless you hear it from me, any information regarding those issues or anything else for that matter regarding your job, should be considered as a RUMOR. When I am sure of anything that will affect your job, be assured that I will promptly notify the membership. So please do not believe anything regarding our status of employment from anyone, unless you hear it directly from me. This includes, co-workers, cps personnel, vendors and so on. CPS communicates directly to your union through me not though any other source.
These are difficult times and we are constantly being bombarded with rumors and speculations from every where. The union is your ONLY trusted source.
As always, I appreciate your hard work and efforts in providing the best possible environment for the School Children of Chicago.
William E. Iacullo, President
Recently we have been asked to upload our engineer licenses, boiler inspection certificates and pool inspection certificates. I have been informed that engineers sign on rules to Maximo do not allow for attachments, uploads etc…
Scan copies of your boiler inspection certificates, pool inspection certificates and engineers license and send to your Facility Manager, who in turn will add them to Maximo, as the Fm has the supervisory capability to add these to Maximo.
Next membership meeting is:
Thursday November 12, 2015 at 7pm
Classes will start shortly. You should receive a mailing by next week with details.
Local 143 and 143B members
