“The strength that we’ve shown in the streets has moved us closer to our goals, but several major obstacles still remain.  The path to a settlement will become more clear after negotiations this week in Las Vegas.

Thank you for your support on the picket lines and in the community. Our members remain strong and determined to reach our goals.”
