The Negotiations Committee is made up of membership committee members and engaged members who have committed to preparing proposals to bring to the discussions with the employers. These subcommittees are where the bulk of the work is done.
- In many cases, these subcommittees and craft committees have been meeting for more than a year to two years to gather data and prepare for negotiations.
- At each meeting, the Negotiations Committee reviews the various negotiations proposals and changes that have been made. Committee members have a chance to weigh in on each proposal, either to voice support or to suggest changes to strengthen proposals.
- The goal of the committee is to build the best proposals possible to serve the Guild Membership.
- Often, various subcommittees collaborate to also help craft the strongest proposals possible.
