Proposed Contract


January 31, 2020


Brothers and Sisters,


I would like to thank everyone for coming out to vote on the contract this past Tuesday; we had an 82% turnout and the proposed contract was voted down. We spent the next 24 hours fielding calls from members and listened to their questions and concerns and went back to the table Thursday morning to negotiate with the company. After negotiating back and forth, and making progress in some of the key areas of concern, the company ultimately proposed its last best and final contract proposal. 


We now officially have a tentative agreement.  We will be putting the summary together and will have it out as soon as possible so everyone has the true information. The company and Union have signed a contract extension that will end midnight February 8th.
