Your negotiating team met with the employer on April 9 to continue bargaining for our new collective agreement. We made a little progress, but also raised several non-monetary issues the employer did not agree with, and we will not back down on. 

We asked for: 

  • A trial period if you take a new job in a different classification; 

  • Excluding “performance” as criteria for determining if you are successful on a job posting (while the employer wants it included); 

  • Clear language on the process for investigating bullying and harassment complaints; 

  • The amount of time the employer has to fix payroll errors, specifically when they have paid you less than you are owed. (The employer wants you to wait until the next pay period, but we want you paid within 3 business days.) 

We remain firm on these points and have included them in our new counter-proposal. Our next meeting is on June 27, and we hope to schedule more dates throughout the summer. These upcoming negotiations will start to include monetary items. 

Please contact a member of your negotiating team if you have any questions.
