We finished up the know your contract trainings this week. Did you miss them? No problem just watch the recording below.

In a nutshell, we're in the early stages of bargaining in since our CBAs expire in August 2022. What does this mean for you? Working backwards, in order to bring the most relevant proposals to the bargaining table, your teams need the most relevant information from you.

The teams work from what you put into surveys and listening sessions. Having in-depth knowledge of what's currently in your CBA helps you provide optimal feedback to your bargaining teams.
