The WCTWT contribution rates from Oak Harbor were marginal at best, and they continued to be pretty dismal despite the new contract. Pension multiplier rates are determined by executors of the trust and Oak Harbor negotiations had no bearing in the decision to cut the multiplier. The trust is not/was not in failing condition the contribution increase was desired so the members could have a decent retirement payment, Oak Harbor had fallen far from industry standards in that respect. Nobody signed their name to the contract, they agreed to the terms it's called a negotiation, that how it works, So the company decided right then and there that they would not give negotiations a chance this time around, and retained a union busting company, built security systems at major terminals, and waited for the contract to expire so they could get their revenge. Still haven't got that # from ya. Remember for the mediator?
