Negotiation Update #9

Negotiation Update #9

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Union and company have been meeting over the past 11 weeks and today, we met for our 9th negotiation session. The Union put forth a complete counter proposal that included the option to retain PPO. The company’s response to the unions PPO proposal, was less than encouraging. The Union Bargaining team, which has received great feedback from you the members, feels that the retention of PPO is of utmost importance to the 700 plus members who have PPO to date. Therefore, the Union bargaining team, feels it’s in the best interest of the membership, to suspend negotiations until a formal response is made by the company.

The Executive Board is continuing to formulate and fine tune the data and proposals that have been put forth. And as always, your patience is asked as all the officers are working towards providing you a fair contract.

Fraternally, Rick Passarelli

Lead Negotiator
