Agreement reached on buyout in maintenance

The Guild and Company reached an agreement on a buyout offer Friday to be presented solely to maintenance staff.

The company is seeking to reduce the staff by one position after work being done for the Connecticut papers was sent back to Connecticut.

The buyout is for three weeks per year of service with health care for the same period. The company will not challenge any claims for unemployment.

“While we never like to lose positions, we of course prefer people to leave voluntarily with extra money to ease  their transition,” Guild President Tim O’Brien said. “We are glad the company was willing to offer a buyout at the three weeks of service rate.”

O’Brien was joined in the discussion with the company by Ray Lifite of the facilities staff.

The deadline for applications is Friday, July 8. They can be given to Human Resources Director Carole Hess.
