“We also have posted the APWU position on the outstanding questions [pdf] while we continue our conversations with management.
“We expect to reach agreement on many of the remaining items and will issue another Questions-and-Answers document at that time,” Morris said. “We decided to issue the APWU’s position in response to inquiries from union representatives in the field.
