Negotiations Continue

The Union and company negotiating committees met again today and continued to work through economic proposals. There has been absolutely no movement from the company on the issues most important to our members. The company's proposals related to Retirement Plan termination, employee health care contributions, levels of health care coverage, sick leave policy, no raise in the first year and reduction of holidays remain unchanged. They have shown no willingness to bargain these proposals. Wednesday's adjournment left the two sides very far apart. We will meet again Thursday morning.
