On April 22, representatives of the Board and ULFA held their sixth bargaining session since the exchange of full proposals on January 18, 2021.
From opening remarks, it appeared that the Board and ULFA teams had different understandings of the ground rules agreed upon prior to the exchange of complete proposal packages on January 18th.
Since a review of the relevant correspondence is essential to moving forward from this difference, the ULFA team withdrew from the negotiation session to enable both teams to perform such a review. This brought the meeting to an end before any presentation of articles took place.
The teams are in communication to schedule the next negotiation session.
