The Union and employers met for the fifth time on Thursday in a bargaining session that extended late into the evening. Both parties started the day optimistic that an agreement could be reached; however, those hopes were dashed as the employers made a flurry of late proposal modifications.
April 2, 2019 __The Union and the ARGA Employers met again today for our fourth bargaining session. While both sides continue to talk and movement is being made, the negotiations are tough. The Union has proposals to allow everyone to accrue vacation time regardless of job title and the Employer does not want to discuss the proposal until we reach a point in which we are discussing all economic proposals. Today, they presented the Union with a proposal that would take away the number of vacation/personal days that each employee would accrue in Duluth.
