1/4/2012 Your bargaining committee wishes to inform the membership that two additional dates for bargaining have been confirmed. They are January 10 and 11, 2012. These meetings will be conducted under the last effort mediation phase of bargaining in front of Provincial mediator Andrew Pariser.
Your committee remains hopeful that the employer will return to the table in good faith and present a revised proposal that will address the concerns of the membership and form the basis for a fair and reasonable agreement. As discussed at our meetings of December 21, 2011, in the event that there are material changes in the employer offer, the membership should be prepared to attend a second ratification/strike vote meeting. Please consult your bulletin boards regularly for further details as they become available.
In the event that we have no further offer to present, job action is scheduled to begin at 00:01am Saturday January 14, 2012.
