Bargaining Update #72

Dear Members,
Before reading this report we want y ou to know that the bargining team has your best interest in mind and are working hard to get us all a fair contract. Pleae call or see your shop stewards for an update on any mobilization activities or questions about negotiations. The company is sending you emails to agree to the BULLSHIT FINAL OFFER that they emailed out, because they are not showing you all of the details and they are not even available for you to see! Why? because in the details they are screwing you over and dont even have the decency or respect to let you see this. Keep up the mobilization efforts. 
In Unity,
Local 1150
