Bargaining Team Report, April 3–6

Bargaining to Resume This Week!

Bargaining Team Report, April 3–6

The Bargaining Team spent this past week working on a new comprehensive framework for settlement for each unit. On Thursday, the Bargaining Team sent our latest counterproposals, including the new wage offer we adopted the day before, to the Employer and provincially appointed mediators. 

Late Friday, the Employer agreed to our proposal to return to the bargaining table on Tuesday and indicated that on Monday afternoon they will provide (through the mediators) a response to our latest proposals. We have yet to hear from the mediators but assume they will support the will of both parties to return to the table.

See our summary and comparison chart for an overview of our remaining proposals and changes made since bargaining broke off on March 25.
