Contract 2020


Sadly, due to the COVID-19 public health crisis our bargaining team and executive board made the difficult decision to postpone successor negotiations and seek a one year contract extension with an annual wage increase beginning July 1, 2020. The last offer we presented to Metro was March Thursday, March 26. We are still waiting for a response.
