The Company bargaining committee consists of chief negotiator Ron Waine, Vice President, Operations (Canada), Ashley Grodecki, and Tasha Walker.

In preparation for bargaining, the Union surveyed the membership and learned job security and work-life balance are top priorities of the members.

The current Agreement is in effect until December 20, 2021, but it is important to remember that the terms of the current Agreement are maintained while bargaining continues and until a new Collective Agreement is ratified by the membership.
