Re: Renewal of the Collective Agreement
Just a quick note of appreciation concerning the discussions and feedback from the lunchroom visits on May 22, 23, and 24, 2019, in relation to the proposed MOA.
The item of most concern that came from our meetings revolved around the language in the MOA regarding Alternate Shifts, and the proposed wording pertaining to the Statutory Holiday language. We are now scheduled to meet on June 20, 2019, with Lakeland Management and Conifer to discuss the issue(s) that you as a group brought forward. The results of this meeting will be communicated to you, our membership on or around June 21st, 2019.
It is the expectation of the Union that this will conclude bargaining, and we will be in a position to conduct the vote on June 28, 2019. This may be subject to change as we progress through this process.
If anyone has concerns or questions regarding this, please feel free to contact me.
