More of the same on April Fool’s Day…and it won’t strike a chord of laughter among the members!
Without a doubt, the Company only has interest in bargaining over THEIR issues and continues to marginalize and disregard each proposal the committee presents.

It’s going to take a fight to strike a deal this go ‘round!
