It has been more than 2 weeks since we've been able to give you a Husky Lima Refinery contract talks update.
The talks resumed Tuesday after a couple week layoff as the company and United Steelworkers local 624 focused on workers returning to their jobs after ending their more than 4 month long strike.
Workers ended their strike after the company advertised for permanent replacement workers.
Local 624 members are working under their old contract that expired in mid-April.
Husky spokesman Mel Duvall told Your News Now Tuesday that the two sides met all day.
He also said the two week return-to-work transition had gone well.
Union president Mike Edelbrock said late Tuesday afternoon the talks did not go well.
He says they told the company their proposal from 2 weeks ago would not pass the membership, they then submitted a counter proposal which agreed to lower entry level wages by nearly 6 dollars an hour, as well as meeting the companies language on a few other issues. Edelbrock says the company rejected the proposal in about ten minutes. At this point, no new meetings have been scheduled.
