Bargaining: Day 1
Today your negotiating team had its first comprehensive meeting with the company in our attempt to reach agreement on a new contract. This initial meeting consisted of an exchange of goals that both the Union and the Company hope to achieve in these negotiations. There was also an exchange of specifics on a number of proposals by both sides.
Our second session is scheduled for Friday morning.
You can be assured that your negotiating team is united in its effort to achieve a fair and just agreement that recognizes your contributions to the business and the needs that the current economy places upon our members and their families.
We have been in contact with our brothers and sisters at Locals 1170, 363 and 320 who, you can be sure, support you in this struggle as we support them in theirs.
As is always true, the most important part of this negotiation is you. Your solidarity on the “home front” is what makes this go. The strength you show will be reflected in the bargaining room.
