On Thursday, June 21st and Friday, June 22nd, your bargaining committee traveled to Vancouver for meetings with the Company’s bargaining committee and Labour Mediator Dave Schaub.
We were hopeful that there would be a way to move forward with negotiations but, unfortunately, after two days of meeting, negotiations broke off abruptly as a result of differences in positions on the issue of use of Temporary employees doing bargaining unit work.
The company determined that meetings proposed Monday and Tuesday wouldn't be needed and canceled them.
At this time there are no plans for a resumption of bargaining.
Should this change, we will send an update.
Your Bargaining Committee:
Ps. Thank you Daryl Salmon for your generous contributions to the picket line. Your support is very appreciated.
