Bargaining to Resume with CONIFER

Aug 21, 2018

After receiving a 93% strike mandate from United Steelworkers Local 1-2017 members, your USW negotiating committee will resume bargaining with the Council of Northern Interior Forest Industry Relations (CONIFER).

Bargaining is scheduled for September 17th, 18th, and 19th, and for the following week starting September 24th. CONIFER represents operations in Houston, Burns Lake, Fort St. James, Prince George, Mackenzie, Fort St. John, Quesnel and Williams Lake.

The membership has given a clear message - they want a fair negotiated agreement, and they have given the bargaining committee the mandate to achieve this. We look forward to sitting down and having meaningful talks aimed at a new collective agreement in the Forest Industry.

 

USW / IFLRA to Exchange Proposals

Your USW Bargaining Committee is scheduled to exchange proposals with the IFLRA (Interior Forest Labor Relations Association) representing operations in Locals 1-405, 1-417, and 1-423 on September 6th, 2018. Following the exchange we hope to secure further dates to begin meaningful bargaining.

 

 

We would like to thank all of our members for their continued unwavering support.
