We want to make you aware that the arbitrator for our new Joint Collective Bargaining Agreement has requested a 30-day extension to issue his decision due to personal reasons. Given his situation, both the Company and the Union immediately agreed to his request, and extended our sincere good wishes as he focuses on his family.
The arbitrator said he anticipates issuing his final decision on our agreement by September 10.
Once he issues his final decision, we look forward to implementing our new JCBA as soon as possible.
We will continue to keep you updated.
