AstenJohnson Bargaining Update
It is with regret that your bargaining committee reports that as of 09:30 a.m. December 15, 2011, bargaining with AstenJohnson has reached an impasse. Your committee has found the latest proposals received from the employer to be totally deficient and lacking in many critical areas. As a result, the committee has rejected them wholeheartedly and has decidied that they should be presented to the membership on December 21, 2011 at the Royal Canadian Legion located at 70 Hines Rd., Kanata. Meeting times will be 09:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to accommodate all shifts. In the event that the employer proposals are rejected, a strike vote will also be conducted at this meeting. Subject to the proposals being rejected, bargaining will likley continue under the 'mediation phase' according to the Labour Relations Act of Ontario. All members are encouraged to attend this all important meeting so that they are fully appraised of events and are present and able to make an informed decision. Your committee remains strongly committed to attaining the fair and reasonable agreement we are entitled to as loyal employees of AstenJohnson who are responsible for an incredible track record of increased productivity and service through extremely difficult times. Few other businesses can compare to what we have accomplished in Kanata. As of this date, our labour has been anything but recognized and/or appreciated in employer proposals received. Your committee appreciates the necessary, strong and continued support in their efforts to correct this impasse. fraternally, Your Negotiations Committee
