The Committees exchanged proposals for the following articles:
5 – Hours of Service
6 – Part Time
7 – Overtime
8 – Holidays
18 – General & Miscellaneous
28 – Home Agent
New – Training **Tentative Agreement**
While only one Tentative Agreement was reached this session, our positions on the open issues continue to narrow on each respective open Article.
The next negotiations session is scheduled for July 10-12, 2018, Las Vegas, Nevada, and will be focused on the RSSA contract.
There is one source of official communications regarding these negotiations – that is those issued by your Negotiating Committee.
Remember: United we stand, divided we beg.
