Tata Steel: De Unie and actions

De Uniemembers of Tata Steel Sociale Eenheid IJmuiden, who met in a meeting on 11 June 2020, have, in the current turbulent times, sent a strong signal to the European and Dutch management boards of Tata Steel. 90% of the members present voted for actions to reinforce the demands of the joint unions. However, as the number of members present did not reach the required statutory threshold (i.e. a quarter of the members), there is no reason to De Unie to get under De Unieflag actions at Tata Steel in IJmuiden.

Nevertheless, in order to respond to the feelings of the members, and to reinforce the content of our joint demands, we will show solidarity with the actions of our colleagues.vakbondand. To this end, we will compensate members who decide on an individual basis to participate in the promotions when Tata Steel actually cuts their salary.

As always in situations of actions, gauge De Unie the willingness to take action among the members with some regularity. For that reason we are organizing another ¾ meeting next week. This meeting will take place on Friday, June 19, 2020 from 13.00:14.00 pm to 19:2020 pm. A definitive invitation, with more information, will follow early next week. Let's work together to ensure that at least a quarter of the members are present at that time. We owe that to ourselves, our colleagues and Tata Steel. If there is ever a time to stand up for your own interests, it is now. And don't think so my colleague does. No, we ask the employees. I am counting on you and will come to our digital meeting. Therefore, put Friday 13.00 June 14.00 from XNUMX pm to XNUMX pm in your agenda.

Finally, you will also receive the correspondence between De Unie and Tata Steel from last week. Here can you get the letter from De Unie read and here the response from Tata Steel.
