Since the beginning of December, our bargaining committee has been meeting with the company and completed our exchanges of non-economic proposals. We have successfully reached tentative agreements (T/A’s) on many proposals, while a few have been moved to economics beginning Wednesday, January 6.
While we feel progress is being made, we must caution every member that only a complete contract offer from the Company that recognizes our members as essential and properly addresses all our issues will be considered a success and worthy of your ratification. We still have a long way to go.
It is vital that all members continue to show solidarity and support your bargaining committee. Thank you!
