Message from John and Keith

It’s the end of the week and the negotiating committee has visited every CL&P district in 457 to discuss to tentative agreement.  It seemed to be informative for everyone involved and it helped the committee to further understand the particular concerns of each department.

What was very clear is there are a number of people who are bitter over how they were treated in this current contract and we share that frustration. So while we will not soon forget that experience, sometimes the only way to move forward is to stop looking back. As we know, good decisions are rarely made when you’re angry.

The Local, along with Local 420, will follow through with the Troubleshooter arbitration case to the end.

Come Monday we have a chance to begin to make things better going forward and we hope everyone takes advantage of this opportunity.
