Unit 1 Bargaining Bulletin#2, July 6, 2012

We have now met with the employer 16 times in the past two years. Here’s where we are following our latest meeting on Friday, June 29:

The Employer

  • Refuses to present a wage offer.
  • Refuses to discuss a significant money saving proposal made by the union that could also improve labour relations.
  • Refuses to reinstate the LTD appeal process unless our sick leave benefits are gutted.
  • Refuses to remove any concessions from their proposal made at the start of bargaining.
