Contract 2017 Negotiations Update as of 8/10/17

After several days of negotiation and trying to come to an agreement with the NFSA Contractors Association, we have hit an impasse. Local 709 has proposed what we feel is the best proposal for our membership. The NFSA has given what they feel is their best proposal and at this time the two parties have agreed to meet on August 29th to resume negotiations. We are asking the membership to please attend our Special Called Meeting, Monday, August 28th, here at the hall at 5:30pm. This meeting will be a full contract update to discuss where we are and where we are going. Thank you in advance for your attendance.

Contract 2017 Negotiations Update

Unfortunately, the meetings we had set up with our Contractors Association were cancelled this week. There were some personal conflicts with members of the NFSA and they were unable to attend. Therefore there will be no Contract ratification at our August 7th union meeting. Meetings have been rescheduled for August 8th & 9th. We will have to call for a Special Called Meeting later in the month to ratify our contract once an agreement is made. We are still confident we will have a new contract by our deadline of August 31st. Please stay tuned and thank you for your continued support and patience.
