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.
