Our TWU committee gave the company counter proposals on Articles 5- Personal Days Off and Article 6 Holidays.

We were able to reach a tentative agreement on Article 9 – Seniority.

Please review the progress sheet of all Articles and Letters.

Historically contract negotiations is a lengthy process, in our hopes to try and expedite this process we requested and have agreed with the company to meet for three days in our future negotiation sessions.

Our next meeting with the company is scheduled for January 11th – 13th, 2022.

We thank you for your patience and understanding, and we are hopeful that we will continue making progress during this process and get you the contract YOU deserve.
