MMA and the States negotiations teams took a break from the bargaining table, along with invited guests, to enjoy what has become a MMA tradition known as’ Pie Day’.
During a tough round of bargaining for one of MMA’s early contracts Ron Rollins, Chief Negotiator called for a break and ordered a variety of pies from the 50’s Bar and Grill. This was a huge success and has become a treat that members on both sides look forward to each round of bargaining. Pie Day is so well remembered that former negotiating members from both sides are invited back just for pie day.
The MMA Negotiations Team has had three rounds of bargaining with the State, April 28th and 29th, May 27th-29th and June 11th and 12th. At least one more bargaining session is scheduled for July 15th through 17th.
