Shaw Abbotsford Bargaining Update #2 - January 27, 2020

January 27, 2020 - Your Bargaining Committee and CAT want to thank the membership for their participation in the bargaining survey that was handed out in January.

The Committee is meeting February 4, 5, and 6, 2020 to go over the results of the survey that you completed and develop our opening proposals based on your feedback.

In terms of process, the official Notice of Intent to Bargain has been sent and both the employer and your Bargaining Committee have set March 19, 2020 as our first day of bargaining which is where the two committees will exchange our opening proposals. The committees are then scheduled to meet again on March 23 and 24, 2020 to begin the bargaining process.

The Committee would like to remind everyone again that the existing terms of the current agreement remain in force until a new agreement is ratified or an impasse is declared.

In Solidarity,

Your Bargaining Committee
