Local 17 Officers Cut Their Pay

May 22, 2009: Colorado Local 17 officers and business agents have all agreed to take a 10 percent pay cut.

Their local union website states that, “The savings from this historic measure will continue to increase Local 17’s financial growth. Following the lead from the Local 17 YRC members, we want all Local 17 members to know we share the benefits and sacrifices together with you.”

It sounds like good unionism. Maybe Hoffa, Keegel, and the International officials should consider this policy. When you’re making over $200,000 a year, it should be easy to tighten up a little.
