Bargaining at the Table Update 4/2/2014

By admin / On / In Contracts, Local 88, Members, President, President's Reports

contractWe reached agreement on the ground rules on bargaining today, 4/2/2014.  Ground rules are a set of rules management and labor agree on covering the behavior and process at the bargaining table.

We agreed we will meet the 1st and 3rd Wed of each month and no new proposals can be presented by either side after the 4th bargaining meeting, 6/4/14.

Local 88 members may attend bargaining sessions as observers but
would have to do so on their own time.

Please contact Bryan Lally with at least three days notice of the
day and time if you are interested in attending.

We also reached agreement on general table conduct, the use of
alternates and the process for tentative agreements.

Between now and the bargaining session on April 16 we will be
drafting language for the first exchange of proposals on that day.

At the end of each bargaining day we will report back to you the
information on those proposals through notice on the Local 88
website. The website will be updated no later than Friday’s
at noon.
