Thank you members for all your support during the negotiations. The contract has been ratified.
There will be a union meeting tomorrow night 530 at the Monroe Woodbury school. We have the intentions on bringing a package back for the members to vote on.
We have had brief contact with the federal mediator. Nothing to report as of yet, but we will update this site as soon as we have news. Thank you everyone for your patience. We are currently still extended at this time.
The negotiating committee met with the company on Wednesday March 12, 2014. At the request of the Federal Mediator the parties were asked to take a cool down period and reconvene on a conference call Monday. Everyone should continue to report to work at their headquarters on their appropriate tours. The Union appreciates the support of the Union body and heard loud and clear the important issues of concern. Any new changes will be relayed via the website. United We Bargain Divided We Beg.
IBEW 503 Negotiating Committee
