PA Cluster Realignment

‚ÄčGuild members,


I received the following email from Ed Condra this afternoon. There are no numbers attached, and they are currently looking for volunteers. We have not received any notice at this time of pending layoffs. I will keep you posted as we receive
information from the employer. Lousy way to start the new year, as negotiations will begin end of February on a wage reopener. 


In Unity,


Bill Ross
