Bloodletters May 2014


Negotiations continue…

We met with the Employer April 22-25, 2014, and had long discussions about some key issues. The Bargaining Team is committed to achieving a fair collective agreement for all and to that end we had many questions and raised concerns with the employer regarding some of their proposals.

Although there was not much progress in terms of actual bargaining, the team felt it was important to get the employer’s response to the questions and concerns we had before moving forward with our proposals.

We have more bargaining dates May 13-15, 2014, and will provide updates as they become available.
