To provide the Bargaining Committee a clear understanding of membership priorities on key issues, we have prepared a survey which we encourage all members to complete and submit to their Bargaining Committee representatives or faxed to the Local office (905 678-0100) on or before October 27, 2017.
The Bargaining Committee will schedule two proposal meetings on November 28, 2017. Meetings will be held at:
The Hilton Saint John hotel in the Belleisle l & ll meeting rooms, in the lower hotel lobby
from 15:30 -17:00 and 18:30-20:00.
The purpose of these meetings is to discuss the survey information and bring forward any issues or concerns that the membership may have as it relates to the collective bargaining process. All members are asked to attend one of the meetings.
The newly elected Bargaining Committee representatives: Kevin Roker, Robert McAvity and Sue Curtis along with Ashley Watkins, Assistant to the Local 2002 President will meet on November 29th & 30th, to discuss the results of the surveys and determine monetary and non-monetary proposals. Once these proposals have been completed, the Union will set dates to meet with the Company to exchange proposals.
Members are asked to list the bargaining issues (in priority order) that are deemed most relevant for the upcoming negotiations.
Please note: the current collective agreement will expire on December 31st, 2017.
During the bargaining process, the Bargaining Committee will ensure to keep you informed as progress is made. Please ensure that you keep us updated with your contact information, and confirm that you have subscribed to Unifor 2002’s e-news at www.unifor2002.org
