Negotiations at Heritage Manor are progressing slowly. The last time we met, the Employer offered an economic package that would result in substantive raises for some and not for others, as well as reducing the length of the current wage scales down to 10 years. Our response to the Employer was that this proposal was unacceptable for a number of reasons. First was that the market comparative data they were using wasn’t accurate for the Iron Range area.
