Negotiations update 2014/04/01
April 1, 2014
We met with TWU and PAFCA for NMB mediated joint negotiations in February. The parties continued to pass term sheet framework proposals during this session but were unable to bridge the gap between our respective proposals. Based on our inability to reach a framework agreement through term sheet proposals, the parties moved back to exchanging full text proposals to better identify our differences and to help facilitate productive discussions concerning those differences. Due to scheduling conflicts we were unable to hold an NMB mediated joint negotiations session in March but continued to meet and pass proposals in order to keep the process moving forward. We resume mediated joint negotiations from April 8-11 in Chicago.
