Re: Negotiations Update – MTS’ Offer
After reviewing our monetary proposals for a day, on Friday MTS submitted their monetary offer to your Negotiating Committee:
· Base Pay: Zero, Zero and Zero
· 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.
