MITA REACHES TABLE AGREEMENT SETTLEMENT WITH CEMENT MASONS FOR FIVE-YEAR DEAL THROUGH MAY 2026
A committee made up of Labor Relations Division (LRD) members of MITA who are signatory with the Cement Masons have reached a settlement with that union for a five-year deal. That agreement included some language changes, which were negotiated during discussions held over two separate bargaining sessions.
The language updates include many housekeeping items, but also incorporate clearer language regarding overtime and show up time, which makes this contract more consistent with other industry practices.
The economics of the five-year agreement include a $2.00 increase in the first year, with a $1.00 in each of the following four years, which averages approximately 2.6% per year when spread over the five years.
Attached, you will find a copy of the Table Agreement along with a ballot in order for your voice to be heard. Please fill out the ballot and send it back to MITA by Friday, April 16, 2021. It can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have any questions about these negotiations and/or this settlement, please feel free to contact Mike Nystrom, Executive Vice President at the MITA office at (517) 347-8336.
