Bargaining Update #3

We met with the company on June 14th and 15th, 2022, and began the bargaining process with the initial exchange of our non-monetary proposals.

Unfortunately, due to a medical issue on the employer’s committee, the committees will not be able to meet again until August for further negotiations.

Every year on April 28, we recognize the National Day of Mourning across Canada. This day is dedicated to remembering and honouring those who have lost their lives, or suffered injury or illness on the job. This year it hits especially close to our Local. It will have been 16 days since we lost our Brother Keith Murphy to a fatal workplace accident.

April 6, 2022 - Firstly, on behalf of your newly elected Bargaining Committee, we would like to express our thanks for your support and belief in us to fight for you to get a collective agreement that respects you, your work and your families!

The Committee has been able to meet several days over Zoom to begin some bargaining training while you had the opportunity to tell us what workplace issues are really important to you via the Bargaining Survey, which was open until March 25th.
