BT Daily News, March 13, 2024 

What were today’s events or meetings?

Today, the BT members participated in the following:

  • Townhalls of Units 1, 2, and 3 caucuses where they discussed wages, job stability, and other questions/strategies.
  • Picket lines had several Bargaining Team members actively engaging with members on the ground.
  • Working on the bargaining strategy after both of the town halls in preparation for the SGMM (Strike General Membership Meeting)

Negotiation process – breakthroughs or challenges

We have some news about bargaining:

  • The Bargaining Team sent several potential bargaining meeting dates to initiate a return to the table after the member approved a streamlined package on March 7 for all three units. 
  • We received an email from the Employer signaling they are willing to return to the negotiating table based on our suggested dates, and we have offered additional dates for this Friday, Saturday, and Sunday to get back to the bargaining as soon as possible. We will mark those dates on the calendar once the Employer and the Conciliator have confirmed. 

Upcoming events

  • BT Meeting – March 18.
  • Executive + BT meeting – March 19.
