As we had previously reported they were given 45 days to arrive at an agreement and today Vice President of the BNTU, Adelaida Guerra, spoke of the advancements of the case.

“Would you have expected that at least one meeting would have taken place yet despite this break?”


Adelaida Guerra- Vice President of the BNTU


“I would have hope we would have had one meeting that is true but looking at it being holiday time I guess the mediator might have had some other commitments or something like that so I don’t know why we were not called to any meeting yet.”


The court-appointed mediator in this matter is George Swift.
