Monetary talks with employer delayed until September
At the end of June, your Bargaining Committee completed negotiations with the employer on non-monetary items which include changes to contract language and working conditions.
We were scheduled to begin monetary discussions yesterday, and continue meeting through today and Friday. However, it was clear yesterday that the employer’s funding mandate was not adequate to meet our request for wage increases. In the end, both parties decided there was no point in continuing to meet until the employer sought a more appropriate funding mandate from the Board of Directors.
It was agreed that the Committee and the employer will reconvene in September. Please be assured that we are committed to seeking fair and reasonable wage increases that take into consideration current realities such as inflation rates. We will let you know as soon as new dates are scheduled this fall.
