The 44th Annual Children's Christmas Party was a huge success this year with lots of happy kids enjoying gifts, snacks and of course, Santa!  

Thank you for your overwhelming support to return us to the bargaining table.

87% voter turnout - 70% rejection of the tentative deal. 

We are newly energized with this result and are looking forward to bringing your message to the company to let them know our work is not complete. 

Thank you,

Your Bargaining Committee
