Please be advised that mediated contract negotiations concluded on January 23. The mediator also provided us with a general overview prior to writing his final report.

Your bargaining committee has been advised that a final report will be released no later than Wednesday, January 30, and once the bargaining committee has reviewed the mediator’s report, the committee shall make a recommendation.
