The Port’s budget for FY2013 was approved last Friday and has included the increments set by law for the workers at the Port.  The Port’s workers have not received their increments since 2009 when it was approved by the board and legislature.  At the last board meeting in November, members and GFT field representative gathered together and voiced their concerns regarding the increments.  The board acknowledged that the increments will be given to them pending the finalized budget, which was approved.  Thanks to the strong voices of our union, Port workers will receive their increments that will bring them up to the national level they deserve!
