3rd Bargaining Session

We are pleased to report our third bargaining session with Bristow, seeking improvements to our existing Collective Bargaining Agreement has concluded with two more tentative agreements reached. Your Union and Company representatives met on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday of this week in Lafayette, Louisiana.

This session, the Company and Union tentatively agreed on language in the following articles:
Article 17 – FACILITIES, EQUIPMENT, AND UNIFORMS
Article 28 – SAFETY/ACCIDENT PREVENTION

During this session, we were also able to hold a Labor/Management meeting, and discussed
issues that have been brought to the E-board on your behalf. We had very productive talks in this regard and hope to resolve any future issues in a similar and timely manner.

The parties look forward to our next bargaining session with Bristow, scheduled for August 29th
thru 31st.

As always, we will keep you promptly advised with timely Union Negotiation Updates shorty after each bargaining session.

In Solidarity,
Your OPEIU Local 407 Bargaining Team
