On This Day in 1695
In what could be considered the first workers’ compensation agreement in America, pirate Henry Morgan pledges his underlings 600 pieces of eight or six slaves to compensate for a lost arm or leg. Also part of the pirate’s code, reports Roger Newell: shares of the booty were equal regardless of race or sex, and shipboard decisions were made collectively.

Bargaining news from Belair Produce, Budget, RNDC, and others
Updated On: Oct 30, 2020

October 30, 2020

Despite the coronavirus pandemic threat that remains all around us, negotiations put on hold during the early months of the year were resumed, issues resolved, and contracts extended or new agreements ratified:

Members at Belair Produce are working under an extension of their contract which remains status quo through Sept. 30, 2021. However, the company will pay a safety bonus to those who worked through the pandemic.

A one-year contract was approved in October by members at Budget Rent-A-Car providing a one-time bonus and wage increases. The contract expired in May.

Carism-Samuel Meisel members approved a 4-year contract with a wage freeze in the first year but annual increases in wages, pension, and H&W in the remaining years of the agreement.

The Teamsters and DHL Express reached an agreement back in April to ease vacation-use rules aimed at reducing any potential layoffs. The Letter of Understanding (LOU) between the Teamsters DHL National Negotiating Committee and DHL Express relaxes rules pertaining to vacation use if shipping volumes dropped.

Republic National Distributing Co. (RNDC) drivers approved a 34-month contract with wage increases, an increase in the layover per diem, and retro back to May 1, 2020. The employer picks up the cost of H & W. A two-tier wage schedule will be eliminated in the second year of the term, creating wage and vacation parity for all drivers.

Transdev members approved a three-year contract that provides above-average annual wage increases across the board, and an increase in paid time off (PTO), with provisions. For this contract term only, Local Union negotiators successfully argued against the employer’s plan to reduce members’ hourly compensation for the benefit of enrollment in the Health & Welfare plan.

Contracts under extensions while negotiations continue: Allied Bindery, Capitol Carbonic, First Transit, Republic National Distributing Co. (helpers), and NuStar.
