KINGS BANKRUPTCY UPDATE 

President Niccollai reported today that Kings failed to attend the second Multiemployer Negotiating Session yesterday.  It appears that the Company may have fired their Attorney of 32 years who had participated in the first negotiating session.

We are having difficulty in understanding why the Company failed to negotiate with the Union yesterday, while they continue to tell the Bankruptcy Court that they are seeking to negotiate this matter in good faith with the Unions.

I guess, however, this is in line with telling the members that seeking to reject the Union Contract is for the members’ benefit, along with the Company’s withdrawal from the Pension and Medical Plans.  If I didn’t know better it seems like watching “One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest”.

Notwithstanding the erratic positions of the Company, we want all Kings members to know that we will respectfully comply with the bankruptcy procedure and will work tirelessly to bring all our Kings Brothers and Sister the best outcome possible.

WORK SMARTLY – WORK SAFELY
