Tuesday, April 16—After yesterday’s marathon bargaining session where we made real gains, our team will return to the table today. We’re hopeful for the best, and prepared for anything.
Below we repost the email from Deepa and David that went out around 9:30pm April 15, 2019:
Our Escalation is Making Gains, Keep it Up!
We are writing to you directly from the bargaining table. After intense sessions going into the wee hours of the morning last week, we are making more progress tonight, and mediators are now assisting us as well. We are prepared to stay at the table for as long as necessary, round the clock, to avert a strike if possible.
Stay tuned for an update.
