Concession Update From Session 2

On Monday March 5th both sides met for the second of the five scheduled dates agreed upon with the arbitrator.

The outcome was that the company was willing to give 50% concession  to part of the membership which would have been acceptable.

The deal breaker was that the company wanted the North and Central members who wouldnt receive the 50% concession to get $30.00 off concession, whereas the South would receive only $ 20.00 off .  We stated to the company that all three areas would either have to get the same percentage or the same dollar amount off.  We firmly believe an arbitrator will rule that all areas have the same percentage.

We advised the company that will proceed to the arbitrator on May 3rd unless the company has a counter offer.
