Recently most of you may have received or have read an email from Russell McGrady; Vice President of Labor Relations, in which he states a process called, Mediation-Arbitration, to assist both parties in achieving a Tentative Agreement. This process, and the process of our negotiations, are guidelines under the National Mediation board, or the NMB for short.
We, at AMFA Local 4, have a link to the NMB on our website, at www.amfa4.com, under the Important Links column. The process listed above, and other pertinent information can be found at www.nmb.gov. During the proverbial “dog days of summer”, and when you may find the opportunity, it may behoove, all of us, as members to browse this site and educate ourselves of the process we may be faced with.
While most of us are enjoying these warm summer months, or vacations with our families, please be rest assured that our website is fully updated with the most up-to-date news to us the members. Also, as a reminder to all our next General Membership Meeting is scheduled for Monday July 24, 2017, where we can divulge in further, and hopefully, useful information on our status of negotiations. Please stay informed! Stay strong! And as always BE SAFE!
