The following statement was posted on the Board's negotiation website . . .
After having separate meetings with the state mediator, both the Board and NFT have agreed to another negotiation session on Thursday, January 27th. In an effort to facilitate open dialogue, each side will be represented only by their respective president and attorney along with the mediator.
Hopefully this smaller group exercise will allow Mr. Webb and Ms. Boyd an opportunity to speak freely and kick start the negotiations into a positive direction.
