Re: Negotiations Update


Since our Brothers and Sisters at Ford ratified their National Agreement, your National Negotiating Team has intensified our discussions with FCA. While we have had a few outside distractions since then, your negotiators have remained focused on resolving all your outstanding demands.

The National Parties have negotiated every day, and long hours since then. Much progress has been made but we still have some difficult issues to resolve. Your negotiators are committed to bargaining a pattern agreement that meets the needs of the membership and provides long term job security.

As a reminder, we previously negotiated an agreement with the company that Thanksgiving Day and the Friday after will be paid holidays under our extension agreement. As developments in the talks take place, we will update you at that time.

In solidarity,
