Dear Brothers and Sisters:
The parties met on March 13, 2018 and March 14, 2018 to review all outstanding grievances and were able to reach agreement on the resolution of thirteen (13) grievances. Additionally, twenty-three (23) other grievances have been referred to mediation with Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services, and are tentatively scheduled to be heard in April 2018.

The parties are scheduled to meet again April 16 – 20 and 23 – 27, 2018 and we will continue to keep you apprised of any developments in the process.
Thank you for your patience and support. Remember to always work safe.
