This morning the Union and the University met to discuss the new Union proposal that was drafted over the two GMMs this past Thursday and Saturday. The Union has proposed a new plan with significantly reduced financial demands, a reduction of total demands from 150 to about 20 and has granted the bargaining team more authority to negotiate. That means that they have space to maneuvre the demands to reach a deal. These are hoped to speed up the very sluggish pace of these negotiations. The University is now in session to consider the offer. The Union is holding another GMM next week. These next couple of days could produce some exciting new developments.
