Contract negotiations update

Delay in play…What’s up?

The last update WSNA sent out after our ninth session of negotiations on August 5 said we thought we would be meeting again to negotiate in mid-September. Unfortunately, due to scheduling difficulties on both sides that did not happen. Therefore, our next scheduled day is October 15, 2019.

Our team is hopeful we will be able to reach a tentative agreement on the 15th. Nevertheless, we are also prepared to take further actions if we need to. We will update everyone shortly after our next session so stay tuned!

Also, remember the Negotiating and Contract Action Team (CAT) members are always the “first in the know” so are a great resource to find out about what is happening.
