Bargaining: Day 2
Today we met with the Company for a second day of bargaining. The major portion of business was the Company’s presentation of the proposed medical/dental/vision benefits package.
In our message yesterday we said our stated goal was to achieve a fair and just contract that recognized the value of your contribution to the business and the needs of your families. Based on the Company’s proposal today, it is safe to say we are far from that. In a word: we were not happy with what we saw today.
It is very early in the process. Both sides continue to exchange ideas. We are working here for you. We will continue to do so until we can bring you a contract you can live with.
Again, we thank you for your support.
Keep in touch.
My hands were steady, My eyes were clear and bright
My walk had purpose, My steps were quick and light
And I held firmly to what I felt was right
Like a rock
