Skill Level Promotions

March 27, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Local was notified today that as a result of the Skill Review that took place in January, the Skill Review Board approved one technician for a skill upgrade. 

Nine technicians were eligible to take the Leadership test, but only four opted to take the test.  Testing took place during the month of January.  All four technicians qualified on the test.

Below is the list of the technicians who received the upgrades which are effective Monday, March 2, 2020:

*Note:  Mary Johnson took and passed the Leadership Test, and she was also approved for an Index 4 upgrade to CST, so she will be upgraded to CST rather than CSL.

For any of our members that feel that they should have been promoted might want to file and present a grievance, and they will need to contact their Area Vice President to do so.  Per CWA Installation Contract Article 12 grievances for skill level promotions must be filed and presented within 60 days of being notified of skill level promotions.  For anyone wanting to file a grievance for skill level promotion, they must do so by May 26th, 2020.

In Unity,

R.K. Ferdinandsen

President
