Bargaining Update

On Thursday, March 7th we met with the management bargaining committee and began renegotiating our collective agreement. Thursday’s agenda involved a meet and greet and some preliminary discussion on etiquette, processes and behavior at the table, as well as some outstanding items from the last round of bargaining such as:

The status of our collective agreement rewrite;
A phone and computer for the union office;
A labour standards issue regarding withholding of temporary salaries for 2 weeks; and
A class plan - maintenance plan revision.

Management has a senior labour relations consultant from the public service assigned to bargain on their behalf, much in the same manner as they did last round of negotiations with a hired consultant.

Proposals were not exchanged at this time but will be on March 28th.
