LUMEN BARGAINING REPORT #12

Both sides continued to work throughout the weekend trying to beat the expiration of the contract. There was a lot of movement made but there are still a couple of items that remain outstanding preventing a Tentative Agreement. It appears we will not get there by midnight but both sides want to continue to get there but will call it off for the evening and continue on Monday. For now, it will be business as usual for the membership and we will see what transpires on

The company withdrew a few of their insignificant proposals and felt they deserved credit for doing so. Both sides have tentatively agreed to a few proposals, but lines have been drawn in the sand. Continue working to the rule and sign a non-member! We will be working as long as it is needed up to expiration to bring in a contract for our memb

Yesterday, Monday, August 6, your Bargaining Committee met with the company and went over the Union and Company proposals. The company was not interested in many of the Union’s modest enhancements.
