After more than six weeks of negotiations with GKN Aerospace, IAM Local 387’s negotiating committee reports little progress on the two-tier wage issue, elimination of the PPO plan or the cost-of-living adjustment (COLA). These key issues have been at the forefront of our negotiation process. Day after day, the committee has brought your issues to the table.
The committee has not yet received a last, best and final offer from the company. We have agreed to an extension through midnight February 21 in an effort to get you the best possible offer and address your issues and concerns. The January 24 vote has been postponed. Face-to-face bargaining will resume February 8. Details to follow. For more information, visit www.IAM387.org.
