General Distributors employees have started the process to rebuild the Union. We are eligible to sign Union authorization cards and go back to the negotiating table in July 2017. The new logo at General Distributors can't hide the awful truth of the $ millions $ in workers retirement and health care cuts that have been implemented by Fick and Irwin. Now they have even taken company vans from sales employees and expect them to haul company merchandise and displays in their personal vehicles - another cut that was part of the master Fick and Irwin plan at the negotiating table with the Union. They denied proposing cuts at the negotiating table but ever since the Union was decertified they have continued to make cuts and concessions on workers wages, hours and working conditions, all to line the pockets of the Charles Fick Family. Time to fight back!
