9 Oct 18-Living Waters Strike Update

Your bargaining committee met with the employer and a mediator today to continue to work toward achieving a tentative agreement and ending this strike.

We’re disappointed to announce today’s meeting did not result in an agreement. We will return to the bargaining table with the employer and mediator at a date yet to be determined.

Our goal is to reach an agreement that will provide stable, defined hours of work and a predictable, constant work year for members. We also want reasonable wage increases that recognize the rising cost of living and better reflect the value of the work you do.

Your ongoing commitment and solidarity on the picket line is truly inspiring and we thank you for your endurance the dedication you’ve displayed as we stand up for our students and ourselves through this difficult round of negotiations.
