Good morning. We’ve met twice recently in negotiations, and we’ll be back at it for four more full days of bargaining beginning the week of February 6.
In the meantime, this Friday and all Fridays going forward until our contract is settled are BTU Contract Fairness Days. We ask that all members wear something in BTU blue and our BTU stickers as well. Then upload your photos for all to enjoy!
