ALLINA CMC Layoff Update 2/27/20
Posted On: Feb 27, 2020

IUOE Local 70 has had several meetings with ALLINA Management in regard to the Layoff and timelines going forward. It does appear due to the scale of the layoff to have a long process all the way to the end. Watch this location for further updates.

  • Last week we had our step 2 meeting in regards to the grievance related to the CBS postings being posted as non-contract positions. Management has until March 4th to respond.  At that time, they could concede, or we could go to arbitration or mediation. Although they are well within their rights, we had hoped to expedite the process as it can affect the current CBS awards. We have also filed a second grievance related another job posting that was posted for non-union doing work we consider in our jurisdiction.

  • Today’s meeting for working through the bumping process was simplified by the fact only one eligible member is exercising their bumping rights. Hopefully this will ensure the minimum subsequent bumping and expedite the process.

  • We are encouraging ALLINA to consider offering a severance package to employees to minimize the bumping for those who prefer to take the layoff.

  • Lastly, we are planning to setup an offsite meeting for all effected members as soon as possible.
