We just wrapped up a difficult set of negotiations. It was rough on my body: a ten hour session immediately followed by a fourteen hour session sitting at a table. It was stressful: co-leading conversations and crafting counter proposals with an opinionated, ten person committee.
Alas, the negotiations are finished! I am no longer captive audience to a talented baker and an army of generous food service workers. We settled a great contract with the help of an amazing committee.
