LDRM claims that we MUST have a new contract in place by the end of the month, or there won’t be any raises until 4/1/24. They claim that DOS won’t reimburse them for our raises if we miss the deadline (and they don’t believe they should ever have to pay a cent of our wages themselves). LDRM knows what a complete disaster it would be if NVC workers didn’t get a raise: workers would continue to leave, applicants would dry up, and UE 228 members WOULD NOT lay down and accept nothing! But for people with a deadline, they showed little willingness to make progress by putting real proposals on the table last week.
We need to send a strong message to LDRM as we resume bargaining tomorrow, November 22nd. CLICK HERE TO SIGN THE PETITION RIGHT NOW!
