But management has shown little interest in our proposals.
We are very frustrated and disappointed with the lack of movement on management’s behalf and their lack of interest in working with our proposals. In fact, it almost seems as if they should have just asked for a contract extension rather than bargaining if there wasn’t going to be a serious consideration of our proposals.
Next week Management is bringing in the CFO to give what will surely be a “sorrow story” presentation on their economic situation.
Over the next few weeks, it is more important than ever that we are able to communicate with each other. Make sure you and your colleagues sign up for important union updates. We will keep you updated as bargaining continues.
