Here is our fourth weekly update highlighting posts on the Negotiations blog from December 1st through December 7th.
Roadshows Week 1 Recap
This past week was a whirlwind of Roadshows—the first round of two tours around the system. The Negotiating Committee made our way to each main domicile, conducting a morning and afternoon session at each one. At the end of each day we posted a recap of all the Q&A’s on the Negotiations blog for all Members to review. We felt it was important for you to be able to review the questions being asked at each session. We hope many of you will find this helpful.
The Negotiating Committee thanks each of you who found the time to join us at a Roadshow. Based on your feedback, these session were helpful to understand some of the key components of TA2. Many of you also found value in discussing some of the provisions that are getting less “airtime” out there in conversation but work in combination with the TA as a whole. We would love to see many new faces this week and welcome you back if you have more questions to be answered. Please check the Roadshow schedule to see when and where we will be at your base in this final week of Roadshows.
Negotiations blog info
If you’ve missed any of this week’s daily posts, you will find them titled below. The Negotiating Committee continues to use the format of “Q&A”, “Get the Facts”, “Did you know?” and “Hot Topics” for the various blog posts. You can also search the blog via key words you have an interest in and it will bring up all applicable posts (e.g. 4K). In addition to the regular blog posts, in this past week you will find the links for each base-specific Roadshow Q&A session.
