A short update

The bargaining committee met with the employer this afternoon.  It was a very quick meeting; the employer gave us an offer for settlement.  The committee will be meeting to discuss whether it has merit and we will be giving the employer our response on Friday.

We know that all the members are looking for some sign from the bargaining committee about how we feel about this new offer.  Unfortunately we have not had sufficient time to digest it ourselves.  We will be fully updating all of you soon.

In the meantime keep up the good work on the lines.  We appreciate your positive spirit and determination.
