Update on National Negotiations

Los Angeles, September 19 – National negotiations continued from Monday morning until Wednesday evening, when the parties agreed to call for a break in ongoing talks. We addressed many issues including unresolved issues from local bargaining, pay raises, educational benefits, dental coverage improvements, retiree medical coverage, and a process to get the Partnership back on track. Bargaining will continue shortly as the parties work to reach a final settlement before the expiration of our National Agreement on September 30.

We will post updates as soon as they become available.
