Your Negotiating Committee met with the Company for a new collective bargaining agreement on Tuesday June 28 and 29, 2016 for the first round of negotiations. Present for the Company were Assistant Vice President Ed Rose, Brian Xavier, and General Manager Richard Griffiths. Present for the Union were General Chair Tim McCulloch, and Negotiating Committee Members Manual Nieves and Jose Caudillo. We would also like to thank Special Representatives Mike Manzo and John Werkmeister for their assistance.
While progress was made on numerous articles, the Company and your Committee will discuss the monetary articles when we resume negotiations on July 12 and 13 2016.
In order for your Negotiating Committee to secure the Agreement you deserve, your continued support and solidarity is more important now than ever.
Sincerely and fraternally,
Manual Nieves Jose Caudillo
