ASP District 356: Bargaining update

ASP District 356: Bargaining update

January 5, 2017 at 11:56 AM

Following the ASP memberships’ rejection of the tentative agreement on December 17, your elected bargaining committee and Unifor representatives met with the company on January 4, 2017 in order to discuss the next steps in the bargaining process.

Unifor applied for conciliation on Dec 23, 2016.  Per the Canada Labour Code a conciliator must be appointed within 15 days of the application. The conciliation period will continue for a period of 60 days. During this time, the union, the employer and the conciliator will meet and try to reach an acceptable agreement. Following the conciliation period the parties enter into a 21 day mediation process.

No further dates to meet with the company have been confirmed to at this time but your committee will continue to update the membership with any further developments.
In solidarity,

Your ASP District 356 Bargaining Committee:
Mustafa Brati
Zirjana Haxhiaj
Ahmed Sadik Isse
Gurpreet Malhi
Theresa Amicarelli, Assistant to Local 2002 President
Cheryl Robinson, Local 2002 President
