After several late nights, long hours and a flurry of activity here in Chicago, management and your Negotiating Committee have reached an agreement in concept.
The next step of the process is the Negotiating Committee will present the agreement to the Master Executive Council (MEC) for approval per the AFA Constitution and Bylaws (C&B). Pending MEC approval, the details of the Tentative Agreement (TA) will be made available to the membership. There is still a fair amount of work to be done and your Negotiating Committee will complete a comprehensive review of the entire TA prior to releasing to the membership.
Thank you to those of you who were planning to bid off for the November solidarity events. At this time, AFA will be canceling the event. Hopefully this will give you enough time to change your bid.
We know you will have a ton of questions, but the Negotiating Committee cannot answer any of them at this time. However, we will get you information as soon as possible.
Your Negotiating Committee—MEC President Jeffrey Peterson, Kristy Stratton, Lisa Pinkston, Jake Jones, Christina Frees and AFA Senior Staff Negotiator Paula Mastrangelo
