Brothers & Sisters;

One more round of negotiations concluded this week in Regina with both bargaining committees from locals 5890 and 6673 making gains that will positively affect all members. We have reached tentative agreements on a number of local and joint common language proposals.

Locally some of these include: Amendments to the 24” agreement, pay stubs, seniority, job postings, lines of progression as well as amendments to Appendix “A”, “B” & “E”.

Tentative agreements have also been reached on common non monetary proposals: Temporary Supervisors, Union orientation for new members, Inter- plant transfers, discrimination & harassment, Pension Trustee language, disciplinary & suspension procedure and contracting out.

Updates will continue to be distributed through the CAT members, web page and Facebook page.

Dates for the next round of discussions regarding “Non Monetary” language proposals are October 27/28/29, 2014.

Remember this is your future…

“We are Stronger Together”

In Solidarity!
