Company: ZERO Severance, Union Proposal below. No agreements were reached and the Company wants us to find ways to fund severance. They pointed in the direction of wages, grievances and benefits but refused to give a written counter proposal that would tell us what they want. They want us to find ways to fund severance and again would not tell us exactly what they are seeking in order to provide severance.
The company is not asking others for something in return for severance, so why do they seek anything more than they have already taken?
Your years of service are not being recognized nor is the contribution to the company by working nights, weekends, and holidays. Their position is that you got paid for it.
No agreements were reached and negotiations will continue on February 1st.
