Kinnic Negotiations Update

On July 21, 2015, the bargaining committee (Andrea Poitras, Pam Konieczka and new member Troy Rees) and Union Representatives Jim Gleb and Mike Dreyer met with Kinnic and Federal Mediator Jo Romer.  We were able to accomplish three things:  We told the employer that members wanted more money than what was offered; we have a contract extension as the contract expires on July 31, 2015 without it; and we have another bargaining date scheduled for August 25, 2015.  We hope to make progress at this next bargaining session and be able to bring back a contract for members to vote on that they find acceptable.
