Greetings, Local Lodge 24 Brothers and Sisters, from rain-swept Hollywood, Maryland! 

Day 4 of the five-day course at the Winpisinger Center is in the books. If you’ve followed along on our journey, you can probably guess that today was all about what to expect during the actual negotiations as well as how to present our union’s requests to the company. We are truly excited to represent all of you during the upcoming negotiations. The majority of the day (8 hours) was spent crafting and presenting proposals and where appropriate, counter proposals.

We look forward to concluding our class tomorrow. Check back once more tomorrow when we will share our wrap-up of the class.

In solidarity,

Joe Paneck,

President, IAM Local Lodge 24
