      Health & Wellness Reimbursement Program

      It is that time of year again: time to turn in your application to be reimbursed (in part) for employees who go have gym or weight management program memberships.  The New England Work and Family Committee recognizes that your health is important. Regular exercise and weight management have been shown to improve fitness, reduce stress, and fight obesity.

      Next Union Meeting!

      Just a reminder: The next Union Meeting in Middleton is next Wednesday, December 14th at 6pm (note new start time) at The American Legion, 69 River Street, Middleton, Ma. Hope to see you there.

      It is with deep regret that we announce the death of Brother Walter Aleska.  Walter was an SST from the Lawrence Garage, and passed away on Tuesday, November 29.  He was 57 years old.  Walter was a good union member with 30 years at the phone company, and he will be missed by everyone who worked with him and had the pleasure of knowing him.  Local 2321 sends its deepest sympathy to his family, and we hope all 2321 members will keep them in your thoughts and prayers

      Visitation will be held for Walter on Friday, December 2, 2016 from 4-8 PM at the Conte Funeral Home, 28 Florence Street, Andover, MA.  Funeral service will be on Saturday, Dec. 3, 2016 at 9:30 AM at St. Augustine Parish, 43 Essex Street, Andover, MA.  Relatives & friends are respectfully invited to attend.

      We are happy to report that Harvard University and the 700 Harvard University janitors / maintenance workers have reached a tentative agreement as of this morning, avoiding a strike at the eleventh hour.

      The tentative agreement will give workers a 12.5% raise, health care without premiums, with the promise from the University to hire more full-time workers.

      This is great news for the janitors on the job, who voted last week to authorize a strike via their union leaders, and were ready to fight for a fair contract.

      Roxana Rivera, the vice president of 32BJ SEIU (who represents the workers), said in a statement:

      “When hard-working men and women win good jobs with decent wages and benefits, it’s a win for families, communities, employers, and the economy as a whole.”

      Congratulations to all of the hard working janitors and maintenance workers at Harvard University! We stand with you now, and always.

      iSí se puede! (“yes, we can!”)
