With less than a week to go, the bargaining team is working hard to bring home a fair agreement. The Company seems to have forgotten that it takes both parties to make that happen.
After a week of bargaining into the evening hours, with little or no progress to show for it, the bargaining team made the decision to work away from the table today. Though the company claimed they intended to work through the Holiday, holding the bargaining team hostage at Hoffman Estates only to pass a few un-contentious proposals has little to do with reaching an agreement; and everything to do with power. The team will work in the “war room” today preparing for what we hope will be a more productive Monday.
Testing the resolve of the bargaining team with a week to go; bad move on the Company’s part.
The team is in this for the long haul and prepared to do whatever it takes, for as long as it takes, to bring home a fair agreement to our members.
