“There were several issues that we had to address in regards to language. Step increases and pension contributions were amongst the highest in priority,” said Recording Secretary Juan Coca. “Eric and Damian Madrigal, no relation, demonstrated true leadership during the negotiation process and were able to focus on those issues.

They provide a critical service to these communities, and I am glad we were able to secure the benefits and economic package they were seeking,’ adds Principal Officer and Secretary-Treasurer John Bouchard.
