Contract negotiations continued with the Employer on September 14, 2017.  Negotiating committee members were given copies of the Employer's proposal to distribute to members in each facility.  While it is still early in the process and two additional dates have been scheduled, it is very likely that a tentative agreement will not be reached prior to the expiration of the contract; therefore, contract extensions have been agreed to for all three contracts.  Negotiations will resume on September 19 and we will continue to update the members at these facilities.
