Holiday Voices from the Shipyard

We want to take this opportunity to wish each of our fellow Austal co-workers and friends a very safe and happy holiday season. There has been a lot progress made in 2013 to get union representation at Austal, but we still have work to be done. Safety, productivity, consistent work schedules, opportunities for growth, discrimination – all of these issues continue without resolution from the company. We need some type of feedback, whether it’s positive or negative. Over 40 of our co-workers have signed petitions in the past month and delivered to the company with no response. Austal says they have an open-door policy – that we have a voice here – tell us your problems and let’s work together to fix them – so we came with two petitions and we haven’t heard anything from either.

We want to see Austal have the best future possible for all of us. 2014 will be our year to make that change. It’s going to take all of us to do this.

Enjoy this holiday season with your family and friends. We look forward to standing side by side with you in the Fight for our Future in 2014.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Mobile Metal Trades office at 251.434.8254 or visit the website www.austalworkers.com.

Happy Holidays,

Mike Gregory and Warren Morgan
