Your union understands the work you do is important, and deserves to be compensated fairly and appropriately. Your work in the NAIT campus community is integral to the school and student experience. That’s why we are unwilling to accept the employer’s proposals of zeroes without attempts to negotiate a better deal for members.
In the spirit of bargaining in good faith, we indicated that we would consider moving off of our initial monetary proposals, only if the employer is similarly willing to move from its proposal of zero wage increases. So far the employer has been unwilling to do this.
Given our current opposing perspectives at the bargaining table, we have had to unfortunately pause bargaining for a period of time to allow time to explore further options and consider developments in Alberta’s political climate.
We have made a lot of progress so far and are counting on your support to keep our momentum at the table. At this time we do not have another bargaining session scheduled, but we will provide an update after the next meeting takes place.
