The URA-AFT bargaining team met with management’s team again yesterday to negotiate. The meeting was less than productive and management’s proposals — particularly on salary — continue to be insulting and unresponsive to our needs on how we structure the raises. We did however make some progress on other proposals. Our bargaining team knows this contract could be settled in May, but not if management continues to disrespect the URA-AFT. Therefore, your actions and pressure away from the table needs to continue.
