Brothers and Sisters,
Negotiations continue to progress with mutual gains on both sides. But as we move forward, we must be prepared for any contingency. That said, a secret ballot strike authorization vote was taken. The decision to authorize a strike against Homeserve USA was unanimous. While it is not our intention to enjoin a strike at this time, we fully intend to remain committed to bargain in good faith to reach a mutually beneficial contract. But we are authorized to strike if the employer ceases to bargain. We will not work without a contract.
Our next bargaining session is scheduled for today, August 30th.
We remain optimistic that if the current tempo continues, we will have a successful conclusion.
We will keep you updated as talks continue.
