On Thursday, December 6, 2018, the parties met and exchanged several counters. We bargained intensely, and the Company provided some data that we questioned. This bargaining has been made even more difficult by the fact that the Company has provided information and data that is inaccurate or incomplete. The Company apologized to CWA for the inadequate responses to our information requests. The Company rejected all 7 proposals that CWA made.
Bargaining Update for days: 12-3-2018 12-4-2018
The last two days have been pretty active with both sides making some movement on the smaller issues. Unfortunately, there has been little movement on the major sticking points like Term pay, Severance pay, Average pay, Vacation, Sick and PPT days.
We have submitted counter proposals and are waiting on the companies response.
