Both sides continued to work throughout the weekend trying to beat the expiration of the contract. There was a lot of movement made but there are still a couple of items that remain outstanding preventing a Tentative Agreement. It appears we will not get there by midnight but both sides want to continue to get there but will call it off for the evening and continue on Monday. For now, it will be business as usual for the membership and we will see what transpires on
