We met with management on Thursday, Sept. 5 and gave them the bulk of our proposals. Our priorities include wages, staffing, shift differential and workplace safety. TG did not present any proposals to us today. Both sides agreed to ground rules.
Our closing message to management was explaining our theme of “better together;” we enter these negotiations in a spirit of collaboration.
We want to thank everyone who supported us by wearing buttons and posting pictures to the WSNA secret Facebook group. Keep it up!
