Update at 1:42 p.m.
At Jewel negotiations today, the Company presented the following proposals at 1:42 p.m.
Update at 12:25 p.m.
At the end of the last Jewel bargaining session, the Local 710 Bargaining Committee proposed to the Company that both sides move to Interest Arbitration.
In Interest Arbitration, both the Union and the Company submit their own last, best and final offer to an arbitrator, who then chooses one offer or the other.
To clarify, the decision to go to Interest Arbitration must be by a membership vote. Mr. Coli has reaffirmed there will be no contract without a vote of the membership.
Further questions or concerns may be directed to any member of the bargaining committee or your Local 710 Jewel Business Agents.
