With a first round of bargaining dates being considered for July, members of GSU Local 6 met in a social distancing meeting June 29 to discuss proposals and elect their bargaining committee. The newly-formed committee comprises Amber Pearson, Pasha Mughal, Amanda Pearson, and GSU staff rep Dale Markling.
“Simply put, collective
bargaining is a group of employees negotiating as a unit with their employer over pay, benefits and working conditions,” said GSU bargaining spokesperson and committee member Dale Markling. “As Wild West Steelhead employees, Amber, Pasha and Amanda understand the work employees do. Their workplace experience and their willingness to participate in the bargaining process as committee members is very valuable at the bargaining table and it is appreciated by their co-workers and by GSU.”
