We Demand Full Negotiations Now!

We have news! After a 94% rejection and strike authorization vote--and over 500 letters sent to the Met Council--Wes Kooistra has...sent an email. In an email to President Ryan Timlin dated October 13, Wes said “Thanks for your invitation. I am not attending mediation sessions as we have others assigned to represent the management position at these meetings.” Even though he’s near a computer and has an internet connection, we still need to ask, “Where is Wes?”

Wes went on to say, “Fulfilling my responsibilities to our employees is directly tied to fulfilling my responsibilities in maintaining a fiscally viable organization.” How can we trust that’s true when he won’t even show up to one day of negotiations?  

As we showed by bringing the bargaining table to Hiawatha and East Metro, we are more than ready to sit down every day and negotiate a full contract. Why isn’t Wes? On Monday, October 26, we have our one date to bargain. All off-duty 1005 members are invited to attend:

8 AM Monday, October 26, 2020
Bureau of Mediation Services
1380 Energy Lane Saint Paul, MN
