Your Union has negotiated a settlement agreement that will enable Teamsters employed at the Department of Corrections in IMU to vote on navy-blue polo shirts (no insignias required) as an alternative uniform shirt.
Members assigned to IMU as five-day-a-week employees or RDO employees regularly working two or more days per week will be eligible to vote. The outcome of the vote will determine what uniform eligible members will be required to wear.
Votes will be conducted, unit by unit, for IMU employees at CBCC, MCC, SCCC, WCC, WSP, and the segregation unit at AHCC.
NOTE: If a majority of members in any single unit vote for polo shirts as an alternative uniform, all members of that unit will be required to wear polo shirts purchased at their own expense.
Eligible members were sent a mail-in ballot on June 23. Ballots must mailed back to Local 117 and received no later than July 7.
