We remain united, committed, and resolute in negotiating the JCBAs we deserve. The Interim Letter of Agreement regarding wages changes nothing in our approach to negotiating JCBAs. Our negotiations will continue, and we are committed to fighting for a strong contract that restores your dignity and offers you even more respect on the job. We appreciate your continued solidarity, support, and patience, which is imperative to helping us obtain this goal.
