Re: Bargaining Update
The Bargaining Committee met with the Employer on January 26 and again on January 27; however, due to availability issues, bargaining was limited to a few hours on each day.
The time convened on each day was very productive as the parties signed off on a number of proposals – both monetary and non-monetary. The parties are hopeful that one more set of consecutive days will be enough to bring a tentative deal back to the membership for ratification. Dates have not yet been confirmed, but the goal is to reconvene in mid to late February.
The Bargaining Committee wants to acknowledge the support from the bargaining unit through the bargaining process. We will keep the membership updated on the progress at the bargaining table.
