Nov. 18, 2022 email to Local 5 members

Your local 5 bargaining team met with company representatives on Nov. 18.

We have exchanged revised bargaining proposals but remain significantly apart on key issues. Because the bargaining is ongoing and we’re tentatively scheduled to meet again on Dec. 2, we’re not in a position to disclose details yet.

Please know we continue to push at the bargaining table for fair wages and good working conditions for our members. We have heard you speak and we ask for your continued support as we try to reach a settlement with your employer. We will update you when we have more concrete news to report.

Bargaining begins

The two sides met via video conference on Nov. 14. Your GSU Local 5 committee presented revised proposals to the employer who are considering same and will respond during the next bargaining session on Nov. 18.
