Congratulations to the Bargaining Team; consisting of Katherine Hufnagl.  Kate has been actively participating in a dual role capacity, one in the negotiation process, and two, as a union steward.  We commend Kate for her efforts and time in achieving the goal of an amicable Agreement, acceptable by both parties.  It had been almost three and one-half years in the making, with numerous meetings along with mediation to reach this Agreement.  The issue of insurance and wages were the most time consuming throughout these negotiations.  Although, with some give and take, by both parties, a mutually acceptable solution was reached.  Needless to say, a tip-of-the-hat is warranted to you, Kate, along with a sincere “thank you” for your efforts, time, perseverance and dedication in attaining this new Agreement.
