Re:            Negotiations Update – MTS’ Offer

After reviewing our monetary proposals for a day, on Friday MTS submitted their monetary offer to your Negotiating Committee:

·         VPP:                      +1%, +1%, +1%

·         PLDs:                     Reduce from 5 to 3, none for new employees.

·         Vacation:               Eliminate 7th week for those with 6 weeks or less.
                                       Delay 3-week eligibility for new employees.

We opened with 4%, 4%, and 4%, and moving the current VPP to base salary at a cost neutral amount to MTS.
