Sisters and Brothers:
Negotiations resumed this week in DAY on Monday and continued into Tuesday. Present for the Company were Counsel Steven Nigh, HR Dir Jeremy Gorges, DOM Steve Albaugh, HR Mgr. Hogan Kindrick and CLT Mgr. Rob Cox. Present for the Union were myself, GLR John Werkmeister, Todd Road-CAK, Greg Farmer-DAY, Scott Carpenter-CVG, and Ian Cole-CLT.
The Union opened this round with comprehensive passes covering all of Articles 1, 2, 3 & 4. Progress was made in all Articles and two counter proposals were made with the only remaining areas not tentatively agreed to being Articles 1C, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 3A, 3F, 3G and 4B. While there were no agreements finalized in these areas, substantive discussions were had following each counter and we believe these will be TA’ed quickly during the next session.
Future dates for negotiations are now set to occur in CLT on January 18, 19 & 20 and February 8, 9 & 10. The December dates that were previously scheduled had to be cancelled without enough time left during the holidays to reschedule them. Once those meetings occur, information will be released by bulletin as we always do. As mentioned previously, our goal is always to make sure everyone has the most up to date information concerning negotiations.
