To all members of CWA District 4 working for Johnson Controls,
On June 17th, bargaining teams from the CWA and IBEW entered into joint negotiations with Johnson Controls, Inc. with the goal of achieving a fair Contract, which addressed our members concerns, by the
expiration of the current Collective Bargaining Agreement, July 31, 2015.
After several days of meetings with the company, we remain cautiously optimistic that we can realize those goals. The company has passed 28 proposals to us, and we have passed 18 proposals across the table to them, as well as numerous counter-proposals. On many of these proposals we have reached a tentative agreement (TA), and though several key issues still remain open subjects of bargaining, we have more days of bargaining scheduled, and are committed to bringing these negotiations to a successful conclusion.
