Your negotiating team wants to thank all members who were able to attend the Town Hall meetings last week.  

Each session was well attended and there were robust discussions regarding the mediator’s recommendations, ratification process and our next steps to reach a settlement after seven long years. 

Your negotiation team heard you loud and clear at the town halls: you’re ready to get organized, vote to ratify and rally to make sure the employer also votes to accept the mediator’s recommendation for wage increases.  

Please make a plan to vote (find voting details here) and attend the rally. To ensure your participation your local will be paying for mileage. Please contact a member of your negotiating team for more details.
