Red River Co-op Negotiations Lagging

Therefore his workload, including the Red River Co-op negotiations had to reassigned to another full-time negotiator from Federated Co-op.

In order to allow for this transition, the parties have set May 22 and 23 as the next set of meeting dates to continue bargaining.
