Hello Brothers & Sisters,


             As many of you know, in August, 2018, the Union filed a grievance, protesting the Company requiring some apprentices to practice ophthalmic dispensing when their sponsor was not on premises.

Attached HERE are the minutes from the 1st fiscal quarter of 2020 quarterly executive board meeting.

The union filed a grievance with Visionworks over the use of apprentices and how it relates to the relationship with their sponsors. This grievance was not settled and went to arbitration.

Arbitration was held in October and November.

Attached HERE is the unions brief in regards to the arbitration.
