The IBT International Negotiating Team met on 8/20 thru 8/22 to finish putting together the framework of what will be your first Teamster Contract.  We were able to complete the framework and have scheduled meetings with the rank and file negotiating committee members 10/23 and 10/24 to begin crafting the language we will use in face to face bargaining with the company.  Once we have prepared our documents we will schedule meetings with the company’s negotiators and begin the process.
