June 15, 2010: Allied Automotive Group has agreed to pay the full contract wage, retroactive to May 29 when their three-year concession deal expired, and will now come to carhaul Teamsters asking for a fresh concession package.
For the first time in three years, Teamsters should receive the contract wage rate, while Allied moves to bargain a concession proposal with the International Union.
The International Union says they will now ask to review Allied’s finances, before agreeing to concessions. Article 6 of the Allied concession agreement already granted the union full access to Allied’s financial records for the past three years, so why doesn’t the union already have this information?
Any concession agreement will have to be voted on by all working and laid-off Allied Teamsters.
