Negotiations Update 3/27/17-3/31/17

Bargaining Notes:

The Union and Company made significant progress in agreeing to work rules and retiree benefits.

The Union and Company worked well past 10pm Friday night discussing Wage Equality and Benefit proposals from the Company.  The premiums in the Health care proposal remain high for our members.  As far as wage equality proposals, the Company wants to remove base wages from the senior employees to match wages in an occupation.  The Union made it clear that it cannot accept a proposal that would take money from our membership.  

Bargaining will continue on Monday April 3, 2017.Healthcare and Wage Equality will be discussed heavily.

Thank you for your support.  As always continue to work hard while the Union continues to bargain for a fair contract with the Company. Keep up your solidarity!!!!!
