The Bargaining committee has met in off the record conversations for the past two days in an attempt to find some common ground and move negotiations along.
While there has been some frank discussion and a better understanding of both side’s positions we are still far apart on the fundamental issues. While we continue to slowly whittle away at the company’s arguments for taking away much of what we have fought for over the years we ask that everyone continue the fight at the workplace. Your efforts are paying off and where we had hoped this would be an efficient and quick process we are fighting for every penny and every inch of movement.
There are no more meetings scheduled for this week. Your bargaining committee will travel back to Philadelphia on Monday prepared to meet with the Company on Tuesday, August 25th.
