Your bargaining team met with the employer this week for three days. We worked on your proposals as best we could but found that the employer was only focused on discussing their two main proposals which we would categorize as major “rollbacks”. Specifically the apprenticeship program and the creation of a flexible workforce which would become disposable at the whim of the employer. It became evident on the third day of bargaining that we were negotiating with ourselves.

Your bargaining team met for the second time with the employer on March 12th, 13th and 14th.  The environment was quite positive and as a result we have signed off on a number of non-monetary bargaining proposals.  In addition, we have had thorough discussions on the employer’s proposal to amend the Apprenticeship article and the dual ticket program. The employer has also tabled language on “seasonal employees”.
