The negotiating committee has been hard at work, gathering evidence, preparing our demands and getting ready to bargain with the employer.
The Union expects to serve notice to bargain soon.
The negotiating committees should start meeting the Employer in the coming weeks.
Our Collective Power
Our negotiators are strongest when they can count on all our support. An educated, organized, and mobilized membership will be key to our success at the bargaining table.
I encourage everyone to get involved in bargaining in any way they can: Talk to your friends, family and co-workers, keep up to date on the issues, and attend your local meetings. Together, we have the power to shape our future for the better.
