Negotiation Updates


Our most current Collective Agreement expires on December 31, 2024. The union and the employer will soon be entering into discussions for negotiations. If you have any bargaining proposals, please send them via email to Heather at

The Negotiating Committee is a special ad-hoc committee that is established at least two months prior to the expiry of our Collective Agreement and
automatically disbanded when a new Collective Agreement has been signed. The function of the Committee is to prepare collective bargaining proposals (which have been suggested by members) and to negotiate a collective agreement.

Questions for the Negotiating Committee can be asked at GMMs. The committee will also usually provide brief updates at these membership meetings.

Members will be asked to participate in a ratification vote once the Negotiating Committee has come to a tentative agreement with the employer.
