Bargaining reaches impasse, town halls to be held
Your bargaining committee reached an impasse in negotiations with the employer following our last round of negotiations on May 8 in Edmonton.
Unfortunately, there are several items, including health benefits, we are still far apart on. As a result, we will pursue an Essential Services Agreement (ESA). An ESA is required before legal job action can take place. It governs the terms of a strike or lockout in the event one should occur at AGLC. Once we have an ESA in place, we will seek a mediator to assist in moving bargaining forward.
Your committee will hold a series of town halls to provide members with important information:
• May 23, 2019 – Edmonton, AUPE HQ at 5 p.m.
• May 28, 2019 – Red Deer, AUPE regional office at noon
• May 28, 2019 – Stettler, Stettler Rec Centre at 6 p.m.
• May 29, 2019 – Calgary, AUPE regional office at 5 p.m.
It is IMPORTANT you attend. Food and beverages will be provided.
There will be a teleconferencing option available for the Edmonton and Calgary town hall dates for members who cannot make it to any of the town halls.
