Bargaining Update

The Bargaining Committee just completed another 2 days of non-monetary (no money) bargaining with the Company. During the last 2 days we have clarified and strengthened the language in the following articles:

  • 12.05- Temporary Employees (new language is clearer and adds improvements to rights of new hires)
  • 12.08 (e) Job Posting Procedures
  • Joint Seniority, Shift and Overtime Committee (clarification)

We have been unable to come to agreement on roughly half of the issues which will now progress to the next level of negotiations which is called “non-monetary main table” when local non-monetary bargaining is completed.

The parties have agreed to meet again on July 14 and 15 for another round of non-monetary local bargaining.
