LATEST BARGAINING NEWS
The Community Support Bargaining Committee met with the employer committee this month to talk about bargaining and how
to proceed after significant delays, including the representation votes and the global pandemic.
This round of bargaining will be done virtually, and as a result of the representation votes, will also include the merging a number of existing contract provisions into one collective agreement which will apply to all members in the new bargaining units. Over the past several months, the Bargaining Committee has been working hard to review all applicable collective agreements in preparation for this work.
The Committee and the employer have agreed to begin discussing a number of issues which have to do with employment processes common to all current agreements (but may be different in each). The two sides will also discuss essential service agreements for those facilities still without such an agreement. Proposals on other issues, including wages and benefits, will be held back until the employer shares their full proposal package.
Stay tuned for when bargaining is scheduled to resume.
