After 11 months of bargaining, KCLS and Local 1857 did not reach agreement on wages or medical benefits. The offer you are voting on includes KCLS’ final offer on those two topics. The bargaining committee feels that these proposals are too much of a takeaway, and will open the door to even more drastic changes to benefits in future years. We are recommending that the membership vote no on this offer.
