Update given to striking Herald toilers by union bosses Ingrid Bulmer and Frank Campbell this afternoon.....
Dear brothers and sisters:
The company, through its lawyer Grant Machum, replied Thursday
afternoon to our latest proposal.
Grant informed us that the union was beginning to move in the right
direction but that our response didn’t go far enough.
Conceding on the pension issue, wage reductions and movement on the
proposed Hub is apparently not enough for Grant and his overlords.
While the company steadfastly refuses to move off the position it
established before bargaining began, it dismisses as insufficient
the very significant concessions offered by the union.
We will continue with our efforts on the flying pickets, the Local
Xpress and on the picket line as we consider our next move.
Ingrid and Frank
