On Wednesday, December 14, the LEB and negotiating team met with members throughout the day to review the proposals that we will present to management on January 3, 2017, when our negotiations begin. The proposals reflect the results of our contract survey. Not every issue that was identified could be included in the proposals. Some issues will need to be addressed to management on a individual basis, some will be addressed at committee meetings.
Seventy members attended the meeting and approved the proposals. There were no dissenting votes or abstentions.
