Pathetic show of leadership skills……and once again we pay the price. There will be (yet another) another Shift Bid……please be assured that the Union does not condone these string of shift bids since the onboarding of our current Management Team.
Contract talks are on for September 16 through September 19th in Washington DC. The sessions will be at the NMB Headquarters and our principal negotiators Alex Garcia and Sito Pantoja will be in session with the Company's representives (uncertain who).
