Your negotiating team continues to push your priorities
Your negotiating team met with the employer on February 17 and 18, 2022 and again on March 21, 2022. We were also scheduled to bargain on March 22 but at the onset of the Mar. 21 meeting, the employer advised us that they would not be available the following day.
