At our meeting, the Union presented its demands and discussed how the parties will proceed. The employer will provide us with any demands that they may have in about a week.
We will be setting up more meetings over these next two months but, in the meantime, we have agreed to exchange language on non-monetary issues.
The Union also raised the issues of health and safety inspections and health and safety committees. The employer committed to ensuring that they will live up to their obligations under the Canada Labour Code.
Members are encouraged to read the bulletins, talk to their negotiators and keep informed on negotiations.In solidarity,
