Today was our seventh negotiations session with management at HRH. Unfortunately, they are moving at a glacial pace. Their latest offer is 1.2% per year, with 25 cent increases to the shift differentials in years two and three – and nothing more.
We meet again with them Thursday and hope the session is more productive. In the meantime, keep an eye out for a message from the American Arbitration Association – they will be conducting our strike vote. It will be a simple yes or no vote on if we should call a strike if we cannot come to an acceptable agreement for a new contract. The information will be sent via email and we will also post on the bulletin board and on our website.
Of course, we will also give an update on our Thursday session as well. Please remember to sign the petition in support of the negotiations. You can click here to sign.
