Bargaining update Saturday June 20th

Bargaining at the small table continued throughout the day today as Union negotiators urged management to resolve issues on wages, pensions, health care and a variety of open contract language demands.

There was some movement on wages and job security, constructive discussions on pension and health care, and some contract language issues were resolved, but a number of serious open issues remain.

The Union stressed to the company that the clock is running out and they need to work harder to resolve open issues, particularly on health care and wages, for an agreement to be reached before the deadline.

Negotiations continue throughout the weekend.
