Bargaining takes a break; back at the table for a significant date(s) later this month.
Our 4th week of negotiations wrapped up last week, and while progress was made, we could not find a settlement yet, as we remain apart on critical issues. While both parties are working hard to find a solution, the union remains unable to close the gap without a significant change in the employer's wage proposal.
Both parties have agreed to reconvene in late April after a negotiations break. At that point, we are hopeful the employer will come to the table ready to make the moves required for us to achieve a tentative agreement.
Please stay tuned.
