In just a few short hours the Company will provide us with their last, best and final offer. It has been a pretty tough couple of weeks. Your committee has worked tremendously hard throughout that time to try and find some middle ground that we could agree on. We have worked hard to save jobs while still holding strong on issues that we thought would dramatically impact our members’ lives. We have represented Local 44 with dignity, integrity and respectfully.
There is a reason we refer to each other as brothers and sisters. We are family. No one understands that more than those that battle shoulder to shoulder for each of our members. We appreciate the love, respect and support each and every one of you have provided us while away from home.
We will be putting together a comprehensive package that will outline all of the changes that may take place under this new contract. At that point, we will have completed the job you sent us to do and will be returning home. It will be up to you, the membership, to determine whether this contract is acceptable or not.
Once again, thank you for your support and solidarity these past few weeks.
