Azteca to Negotiate
(posted: 3/25/04)

There were no Azteca struggle news stories posted from early May until late June 2003 and again from June 2003 until March 2004 on the UE web as, in another show of the union's good faith, we honored the company's request to help create a 'better negotiating climate'. Our show of good faith was not reciprocated. As of March, 2004 we are restoring the visibility of the Azteca struggle to our website.
