We’d like to offer our sincere thanks to NASA Chief Spokesperson Nancy Furlong and the entire NASA bargaining team—Kathy Collins, Jillian Pratt, Markian Hlynka, Kim Koch, and Trent Nabe—for their many months of hard work in negotiating this agreement.
We’d also like to thank all the NASA members who voted, attended information sessions, provided feedback, took part in developing our bargaining priorities, talked to their co-workers, and stayed engaged throughout this extended and challenging bargaining process.
