Rome research employees now have a new union contract (CBA) which gives them a 5% raise in both health and welfare and in salary. ROME is a private contractor to the Federal Government and these employees were organized under the Service Contract Act (like our DODEA Bus drivers) which gives special protections and incentives for employees to go Union! All (non-construction) employees of Federal contractors fall under this law and if they are not all ready organized should contact GFT right away to begin the process of winning a better life for their families.
