Local 17 Officers Cut Their Pay

April 24, 2009: Colorado Local 17 officers and business agents have all agreed to take a 10% 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 we share the benefits and sacrifices together with you.”

It sounds like good unionism, and the Local 17 members appreciate it.

Perhaps 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.
