The AHEM and district negotiations teams met today for our third mediation session. Our team believes we made enough progress to suspend Work to Rule effective immediately. At Monday's special Representative Assembly and Executive Board meeting, our bargaining team will recommend that we postpone discussing a strike authorization vote until after our next mediation session.
We and the district team will schedule an additional session at the Minnesota Bureau of Mediation Services over our spring break. We will update the results of that meeting on our website at www.ahemnegotiationsnews.blogspot.com.
We believe that our members' work played a major role in our progress today. Your showing up and taking action is deeply appreciated.
We still have work to do, but today was a step in the right direction. We will keep you posted,
Your AHEM Bargaining Team:
Paul, Jay, Vicki, Tom, LeMoyne, Val, Duane, David, and Julie
