The ACEA negotiations committee met today to discuss the status of contract negotiations. Over the past month, the ACEA has been in contact with the Board discussing a number of possible scenarios regarding a settlement. We have not reached an agreement with the Board at this time. If an agreement is not reached in the near future, the ACEA will explore the next step in the negotiating process, which is mediation.
You can be rest assured that the ACEA Negotiating Team is doing everything in their power to reach a fair settlement with the Board during these difficult times. The negotiations process is much different due to COVID-19 and both sides are trying to make the best of a bad situation. The next meeting of the team will be on June 4th, 2020.
