Agreement Could Lead to Conversions

An Agreement on filling residual vacancies has been reached at the national level. I have attached the Agreement and provided a link to the News Bulletin. The Charlotte Area Local has a complete list of all residuals in all crafts. We will ensure compliance with the Agreement and are encouraged it will lead to PTF conversions and PSE conversion to career status. Good job on the part of President Dimonstein who spoke of the Agreement when he addresed the Executive Board after our last union meeting.
