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 PSAC bargaining team began negotiations with the First Nation Health Authority team this week. We have tabled our proposals to the Employer (see PDF below). We also had the chance to meet with members at the Alberni and Sinclair Centre worksites and are holding a conference call for other DCL 22000 members from other sites today at 5PM to provide a bargaining update. We will let you know as soon as we have confirmed the next set of bargaining dates with the Employer.

Our PSAC bargaining team and management at Canada Post were back at the negotiations table in Ottawa from September 27 to 29, 2017.
Our PSAC bargaining team met in caucus for two days and reviewed in detail the global offer that Canada Post tabled on August 9, 2017. Our team fully considered the employer’s offer and prepared a counter-proposal which we tabled on September 27. Both parties met and discussed a number of outstanding issues.

In March the union and the employer selected Arbitrator Judi Korbin to settle our collective agreement, which expired June 30, 2015. We have been working for the past seven months to schedule arbitration dates!
Finally, after IMP dragged its feet for months and months, the Arbitrator had no other choice but to order the employer to an arbitration at the end of February. It’s shameful that the employer doesn’t respect us enough as employees to agree to arbitration dates in a timely manner.

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”.
