Cleveland, OH May 5, 2019– Congratulations to our new members working for Creative Management Technology, Inc. (CMTI) at NASA Glenn Research Center on ratifying their first agreement yesterday, May 4, 2019. Members unanimously ratified the agreement, which was negotiated within 20-days of CMTI employees’ certification by The National Labor Relations Board (NLRB).
Our recently organized Brothers and Sisters fall under the Service Contract Act (SCA) guidelines, which allow for wages, benefits, and working conditions to be set by union bargaining. A majority of members will receive substantial wage increases, up to $4.41 per hour, over the life of the agreement.
The 3-year agreement includes benefits previously unprovided, including weekend premium overtime pay and annual healthcare reimbursement totaling $2,400 per year. In addition, members will now receive a guaranteed $.50 per hour contribution to the International Association of Machinists National Pension Fund 401(k) Savings Plan. The agreement also includes language for government shutdown wage reimbursements.
