Teamsters Kick Off Negotiations in Michigan
The Teamsters National Automobile Transporters Industry Negotiating Committee (TNATINC) met with carhaul employers in Romulus, Michigan this week. All proposals from both sides of the table were presented, explained and discussed.
There was productive dialogue between the parties throughout the first round of negotiations. Rank-and-file members on the TNATINC played an important role in the discussions, providing detailed explanations of the proposals and positions of the union.
“I want to thank the dedicated members of our committee for participating in these negotiations. We must understand each other’s proposals fully before they can be addressed. The companies clearly understand our proposals after these meetings,” said Avral Thompson, Carhaul Division Director and TNATINC Co-Chairman.
The TNATINC will meet again in Romulus, Michigan on Monday, May 16. Negotiations will take place through Friday, May 20.
“I believe negotiations are moving along as expected,” Thompson said. “As previously stated, our negotiations will conclude by midnight May 31 with a proposal to vote. We will not be extending the agreement for negotiations.”
Carhaul Teamsters are encouraged to stay informed and keep in touch with their local union. The division will continue to update members in the days and weeks ahead. Stay tuned for more updates and visit the division page at www.teamster.org to learn more.
