Congratulations to everyone!

Please find attached the new C/A, which will also be posted on the HR website (replacing the old document). We have asked the employer to print a limited number of hard copies as we expect to be back to negotiations in the spring again (our contract expires March of 2014).

In solidarity,

Lois Rugg, President
