      The Company outright refused to provide a counterproposal this week with the only explanation being: “We did not view that as a proposal.”  The Company continues to insist on massive offsets of foreign outsourcing and elimination of your paid rest.  The Company asks for these “offsets” while not increasing the money in any significant fashion from the Tentative Agreement (TA) that you, the membership, rejected by a wide margin.

    Your Committee was prepared to receive the Company’s counterproposal this week and advised the Company we wanted to reach a deal.  Make no mistake – the Company is not currently engaged in good faith negotiation.  This is delay for the sake of delay just as Mr. McCrady threatened in his first letter to you following rejection of the TA.    

    We thank you for this continued support.  The solidarity that we have seen since conclusion of the ratification process continues to increase with each passing day and that is exactly what we need in order to bargain for what you have rightfully earned.


    Your Negotiating Committee
