IGA Bargaining Stalls

Negotiations with Tober Enterprises (IGA) continued on January 5th and 7th but ended without a settlement reached. The two sides exchanged variations of a settlement offer but when talks ended there were still issues outstanding that needed to be resolved. " I'm cautiously optimistic," commented Local 247 Director of Bargaining Dan Goodman. " I don't think we have anything on the table that comes as a surprise to the Company but there are certain issues that we just haven't been able to agree on in their current format." The Company expressed an interest in having the opportunity to review where they were at and get back to the Union Bargaining Committee. We will keep you updated.
