Something to Commemorate a Contract Ratification?

Postby amoyle » February 5th, 2013, 11:33 am

Hey! Does anyone do a giveaway, i.e. lanyard, pen/pencil, post-its to commemorate a contract settlement? We have been through a tough almost-two years and I thought it might be nice :roll: to do something for members that says: "We came through a tough time together." Any suggestions? Thanks. Ann

Hi Ann. I've been lurking here to see if any local leaders had any suggestions, but so far no luck. I think this is a great idea!

Has your team had any success in brainstorming any "feel good" things (gifts, events, etc?) for this cause?

Hi Jim,

Everybody's looked at me like I have two heads :shock: :shock: when I bring it up, so I'm going to let it die. It's been such an ugly, discouraging time - we are still waiting for retro, and our new salaries, that I think it's better not to commemorate it. Thanks for your support, though!

OK Ann. Maybe it's something that you can begin to develop slowly over time. Maybe an end of the year BBQ would work? Or maybe some fun events in September to welcome back the staff?

Hi Ann. I met with a membership chair over the weekend who had this advice. She said something to the effect of:

"We recently hosted a contract ratification event. We played 'We are the Champions' as the negotiations team entered. We treated our members to appetizers and pizza. Our program offered the audience the year in review. We recognized members who stepped up and made a difference during negotiations--not just negotiations team members but anyone who went above and beyond for us."
