One More Day For OTF Bargaining

 The Union and the Company met on April 9th with the assistance of Mediator Mark Atkinson. It was hoped that we would be able to resolve all the outstanding issues but at the end of the day we were still having discussions and it was apparent we would not reach a final settlement. As the two sides were making progress, Mediator Atkinson has requested that we meet one more day, on April 28th, to allow the opportunity to deal with all issues at the table and avoid forwarding matters to him for a binding decision. Some of the matters still outstanding revolve around training and layoff and recall language.

 We certainly recognize that this has been a long and frustrating process for the members and we hope to be able to have a full and final resolution at the end of the April 28th meeting.
