Bargaining took place on Oct. 1 and 2 and is scheduled to resume on Oct. 28 and 29.  Progress was made on some issues but a great many remain outstanding.  NRC is attempting to restrict or remove several current benefits and entitlements while the RCEA is attempting to preserve or enhance those same provisions.  At this time, no pay offer has been made.   It is not our practice to release specific details of bargaining while it is going on.  We will wait and see what happens  during the next two bargaining dates and may, at that time, put out a more detailed summary and explanation.
