Historic Contract Secured for Local 277 Members at American Income Life Home Office

In a historic vote held Monday, June 28, 2021, the members of Local 277 working for the AIL Home Office in Waco, Texas, overwhelmingly ratified a new three-year agreement.  The bargaining committee secured record general wage increases in each year, no increase to employee insurance costs, and a nearly 20% increase to the pension multiplier over the life of the agreement.  The committee also bargained substantial improvements to shift differentials, bilingual pay, promotion increases, overtime accruals, and the holiday bonus.  Perhaps the most significant non-economic item the union was able to bargain was work-life balance.  Employees may now choose from three different weekly work schedules that best fit their needs and telecommute, where the classification allows.  The Local 277 bargaining committee included DeAundra Cephus, Debbie Engelke, Terry Harrison, LaShun Hawkins, Dave Jones, Tonia Stonum, and Tyler Turner.
