On Thursday, October 29, 2015 the Company and Union negotiating committees met at 2 Park Avenue, NYC to continue negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Company’s committee included Valerie Francois, Tony Schepens, and Cristina Kirkorian. The Union was represented by Michael Manzo, Cathy Carey and Francois Bisi.
During this session, the Union presented the Company with a counter proposal on wages. We also discussed Standby Rostering and minimum days rest after being rostered for what we call a “back to back”. The Company refers to this as a “W”.
We have scheduled additional dates and we will continue negotiations on November 18, 19, 2015 and December 4, 2015.
Please address any questions you might have to a member of your negotiating committee.
