March 26, 2014 - ARGA and the Union met for their second bargaining session. Both sides had a good discussion on several items with health care being the biggest subject.

The Employers made it clear that they are not pleading poverty. We did reach some tentative agreements. The Employers started off the morning on our proposal which was short and sweet. We have a tentative agreement to change the Local number from 1116 to 1189.  The rest of our proposals are economic issues which the Employers said they want to get all non-economic issues off the table first.

March 20, 2014

Southern Division retail negotiations began on March 20, 2014 with the Union presenting our proposals to the Employer representative for Knowlan's Festival, Chris Thienes.  The Union and the Employer met at FMCS (Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service); Jeanie Frank is the mediator assigned to our negotiations.

The Union members at Interfaith Care Center in Chisholm ratified their contract on March 18, 2014, after a nearly two-year fight. Pictured are the vote talliers (l-r), Jane Joki, Christine Spurlin, Rose Gerding, and Cheryl Winterquist.  Congratulations to all of the members on their agreement and thank you to the community for your support!
