New Scanner Information
The new scanners are being deployed to all offices by the end of September 2015. The ability for the scanners to send and receive text messages has just been enabled. This means that your manager could text you instructions or questions. Weingarten Rights are your right to Union representation at anytime you believe questions by management might lead to discipline. You have to ask for a Union representative – management does not have to offer one. [more]
