Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from October 16 to 20, 2017.
The parties had productive discussions on all outstanding issues. Although no agreement was reached this week, we remain optimistic that a negotiated settlement could be reached when we are back at the bargaining table November 6-10, 2017.
Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from September 19 to 22, 2017.
Although progress is slow, the parties worked hard this week on all outstanding issues at the table and agreed to focus on priority areas. We are encouraged by the fact that the Employer removed the serious concessions that had been previously tabled under “Agency Transformation / Building For the Future”.
