Super One Ashland Meat Negotiations Commence

4/30/14 -- The parties met on April 28, 2014.  Both parties brought reasonable proposals to the table from their points of view but it is clear that the two parties are far apart with regard to the usual economic culprits of wages and health and welfare. Agreement was reached on including gender identity into the non-discrimination clause along with bringing the current leave of absence language into compliance with and exceeding FMLA.  

The parties are set to return to the table at the end of May.
