            BIO-DATA TRAINING - Call 814-548-1429 ext 102 to reserve a spot

      Often we get calls in the office from members that have been by-passed on a job bid for different reasons, however most of the time it’s due to their BIO-DATA either not showing enough detail or not being filled out at all. 3 years ago we started a bio-data training for local 8 members, and in 2019 our hope is that every member has a chance to attend a training. We have already scheduled 10 trainings in January and February, 5 of which will be on the east side of the state 3 on the west side and 2 at the Union Hall.
         PLEASE KNOW, all are open to members from any campus to attend. If you plan to attend one you must SIGN UP with me so I can be prepared with materials. These trainings are NOT PAID TIME. If you want to attend during work hours you MUST BE APPROVED OFF by your supervisor. NOTE: I did the best I could to get morning and late trainings at nearby campuses. If you work and cannot take time off to attend at one campus, the hope is you might be able to attend another campus nearby during your off shift hours. Please   review the date and locations and pick one that will work for you and sign up today! If I do not have RSVPs for a campus I will not attend …. YOU MUST RSVP by deadline.

      DO NOT LET ANOTHER JOB PASS YOU BY DUE TO YOUR BIO-DATA!!!

      CONGRATULATIONS TO THESE 2018 HOFFA SCHOLARSHIP WINNERS!  BEST OF LUCK TO ALL OF YOU!

          




      Congratulations to Kathleen Cempa for receiving a James Hoffa Scholarship award.  Kathleen is the daughter of Local 8 Sister, Susan Cempa.

      Kathleen graduated from the Grier School and is majoring in Pre-Med at Penn State - University Park.

      Best wishes Kathleen!

      SMOKING AND TOBACCO BAN AT PENN STATE

      Recently the Union has been notified by Penn State that it is rolling out a ban on the use of any tobacco products by students, faculty, and staff employees.

      Union employees are not required to follow this new policy.

      The protection of a Union and its contract is why Penn State cannot implement this policy on us.

      It is a subject of contractual bargaining and it has to be bargained with the Union.   Without a Union, Penn State can implement this and there is nothing an employee can do about it.  There are many things that Penn State cannot do without bargaining with the Union.

      We are the voice of the workers at Penn State who get to negotiate what the workers want.  Without a Union, we are at-will employees, leaving Penn State to set the rules, wages, and benefits.

      If you’re approached by Penn State management, police, faculty, staff, or students about your use of tobacco, kindly tell them that:

      Because of our Union, this policy does not apply to you.

      IMPORTANT NOTICE regarding hall rentals

      Effective January 1, 2018

      In order for us to continue to offer Hall Rentals to our members and retirees our insurance company is requiring we make the following changes effective immediately:

      You must provide us with one of the following:

      1.  Proof of homeowners or renters insurance that lists Teamsters Local Union 8 as additional insured on your current insurance.

      This will require you to call your insurance company and have Teamsters Local Union 8 added as additional insured.  Fees may apply depending on your insurance company.

                     OR

      1.  Purchase special event insurance with Teamsters Local Union 8 listed as Additional Insured. This is a special insurance purchased for your event.

      Your insurance company may offer special event insurance or you can go to:

      theeventhelper.com/party-insurance

      It is your responsibility to purchase this insurance and to provide proof to us 30 days prior to your event.

      TEAMSTERS LOCAL UNION 8 MUST be listed as additional insured on the insurance information you give us.

      You CANNOT have your event without providing one of the above.

      Failure to provide the insurance information will result in a forfeit and the $75 rental fee will NOT be refunded.

      URGENT!!!!

       

      Texting NOT RECOMMENDED as a way of communication with your supervisor

      We DO NOT recommend members to use text messaging as a way of communication with their direct supervisor or any management level personnel.

      If you allow/take part in texting with your direct supervisor or any management level personnel you are  creating a pattern and giving the impression it is okay to use texting as a way of communicating.   If just ONE TIME technology fails and you do not receive an important text, they will take disciplinary action.  It has happened—STOP TEXTING with your direct supervisor or any management level personnel. 

      Management needs to communicate directly with you by verbally talking with you in person or on the phone.  Texting is not an acceptable way of communication. 

      The next time your supervisor texts you, text back: 

                       “I have been advised by my Union representative to inform you that I will no longer accept text messages from you on my personal cell phone either at work or at home.”

      Once you send that text they are not authorized to text you again and do not respond to any text messages. 

      Keep in mind, you are required to give the University a phone number so that management can contact you when you are not at work.   You should give them a land-line number.  If you do not have a land line you should consider getting one.
