Negotiations Update – May 22, 2017

We have membership meetings today at the Lafayette Firehouse, at 1:30 pm and 5:30 pm. Meanwhile, the Negotiations Committee will be bargaining with management to try to reach a settlement, one day before the ULP strike is set to begin.

The pressure that we’ve all put on management is paying off. Yesterday, we made progress on security concerns in contract negotiations. But AAC refuses to negotiate in good faith regarding staffing and wages.

Negotiations will continue tomorrow but it remains to be seen whether AAC can prevent a strike. Come to the firehouse tomorrow to hear whether AAC has come to the table with real contract proposals that respect the hard work we all do.
