‘We know the money is there, we know our demands are reasonable’

Lucye Millerand, executive vice president of URA-AFT Local 1766, said negotiations have not achieved much so far. “The sticking point is the unwillingness to respond to very reasonable demands we have put forth,” Millerand said, adding, “The economic proposals they’ve put forward are insulting. We want some reward for our essential workers who can’t work from home, but yet were here all through the pandemic, keeping the place safe.”
