Yesterday we had our third negotiation session with management. At this session management provided us with a set of their initial proposals. We had some productive back and forth and were able to sign off on a few tentative agreements regarding Union issues such as meeting space and bulletin board location. We meet again with them this Friday and plan on providing them most of our economic proposals. We anticipate a lengthy discussion and hope to begin working on some of the larger issues facing our membership.
As always, we will keep you posted.
