We met with manage­ment Thursday, Oct. 7. We exchanged more counter proposals as did manage­ment. At the end of the day, manage­ment was still working through our counters but not able to get an answer.

We believe we are very close. Our next date is Oct. 29. Please thank your negoti­ating team — Lovella Flores, Lori Riojas and Marisela Aguilar — for their dedica­tion and commit­ment to getting a fair contract for all.
