Bargaining Report 1/25/11
Bargaining continued today. We received counters to many of our original proposals and we presented new ones. We are negotiating issues of your job security, the transfer of your work, compensation and your earned time off.
While talks have been business-like and somewhat productive it is safe to say we remain at odds with the company position in some very key areas. We have much ground still to cover here and that means you still have much ground to cover. Do not underestimate the importance of where you are right now.
Another important factor seemed to come to light in recent hours of these negotiations. It appears some of the representations made to our assignors on Monday may not be entirely accurate. I would think our assignors had at least earned the right to be dealt with forthrightly on a matter as important as this.
Be assured we are trying to get to the bottom of this. There will be more to come.
