On Friday, August 4, 2023, the Company will email the VEO package to all employees. We are scheduling (2) zoom meetings, one for Tuesday, August 8th and another on Wednesday August 9th to go over the information and answer questions. Both meetings will be at 6pm.

There are limitations that will apply to each job title. I have included the numbers for Maine and job titles that will be a combined 3 state total.

The Company has postponed both the Surplus and Transfer of Work. Unfortunately, they will not give any guarantees on the number of VEO packages it will take to satisfy both.
