Contract Talks Continue
Guild Negotiators Seek to 'Get it Done'
The Guild and the company have had eight bargaining sessions since off-the-record talks began on Oct. 28. Both sides have expressed satisfaction with the progress that has been made. Four additional dates have been scheduled, beginning this week: Jan. 31, Feb. 3, 4 and 6.
Under the ground rules of the off-the-records sessions, the Guild and the company have agreed not to reveal the details of the discussion or any agreements that have been reached. If the talks are successful, all of the agreements will be publicly disclosed and Guild members will vote on whether to accept the proposed agreement.
Members of the Guild bargaining team believe that it is possible to conclude the off-the-record talks in the remaining scheduled meetings. However, there remains the risk that talks could break down. It is the Guild's goal to use the next several sessions to GET IT DONE.
