To date, NO discussion with CPS have been made about the IFM issue. The Local and our Attorney will be meeting with CPS’ legal team to gather information about the IFM program. As I have said previously, nothing has been discussed so anything you might have heard regarding the IFM program is rumor. Also, it is my recommendation that until I inform you, do not accept or imply that you are willing to take any offers. Any offers at this time can not be supported by anyone, as your union has not agreed to any terms regarding the IFM.

Be assured your best interests are the primary goal of myself and the officers of local 143. Your seniority rights will prevail. As identified in the contract, your seniority date is the date when you were first employed by CPS in a Local 143 bargaining unit position. I will update all of you when I have information.

Fraternally,

Bill
