This was the third meeting with employers and they offered very minor modifications. They’re still pushing to take away seniority rights, earned vacation rights, and to make it possible for courtesy clerks to check. They brought nothing new to the table that would resolve our primary issue: being able to afford to live in our communities.
The next scheduled negotiation dates are September 18th and 19th. We will continue to keep you informed and we need everyone to continue to show unity, wear your buttons, and be prepared.
