The Bargaining Committee had a recent call with the employer, and information is being shared to keep all the ASP members informed about the ongoing negotiations. Both parties are actively engaged in ongoing negotiations, and the employer is participating in discussions with stakeholders, including the GTAA, to address the Union's last demands.
The dedication of the elected Bargaining Committee, along with support from Local 2002 and Unifor National, is playing an important role in securing a more comprehensive monetary package. We can assure the members that the Committee is acting in the best interests of the entire membership.
The communication regarding the potential withdrawal of labour as a last resort emphasizes the seriousness of the situation, underlining the Committee's commitment to exhausting all options before considering a strike. The ongoing efforts by ASP to address demands through meaningful dialogue and keeping the Union informed of progress are positive signs of a commitment to finding a resolution.
Members' patience and solidarity are acknowledged and appreciated, highlighting the importance of unity during this challenging process. The commitment to keeping members informed as soon as there is more information on the next steps is vital for maintaining transparency within the membership.
As negotiations continue, members are encouraged to stay informed and remain supportive of the Bargaining Committee's efforts. The commitment to good faith negotiations and the belief that the best deals are reached at the table reinforce the collaborative spirit needed to reach a fair and satisfactory agreement.
