Report from the bargaining table
On June 19, I gave you an update on our progress in negotiations and told you that we’re going to keep pushing for an agreement that’s fair to all parties and that recognizes and rewards our technicians for their contributions to the company. Several of you responded with positive and insightful feedback following that letter, and I want to thank you for reaching out. A few of you expressed hope that we could build on the momentum from our June negotiations by meeting with IBT representatives sooner than our scheduled July negotiations, and both the company and the IBT agree with that approach.
After discussion with union leadership, I’m glad to say that we were able to get some subcommittee meetings on the calendar for early July, with some additional dates pending for the following weeks. We will keep you updated on our progress.
