PSAC's IMP bargaining team met with the company in Vancouver for three days with the help of a conciliator last week. The team was hopeful IMP would address their workplace concerns and that a new contract would be negotiated without having to go to arbitration. Unfortunately, based on the minimal movement by the employer, PSAC is filing for arbitration. The bargaining team is fighting for fair treatment of all members working at IMP. The table below shows the union's position on key issues, and the company’s response to them:

We have just received the arbitration award from Arbitrator Judi Korbin. While we are very disappointed that many of our main issues were not addressed in this award, there were some important gains. We also want to point out that not a single one of the IMP’s concessions were granted!

Our bargaining team traveled to Vancouver for a one-day meeting with the arbitrator and the employer to go over our arbitration submissions.

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.

The employer began our meeting earlier this week chastising your negotiating team for the size of your bargaining package.  They went on to tell us that the current collective agreement was a “mature” document and all that was needed was a little modification. Further, they were not anticipating such a detailed package.  They then requested that we take another look at our package with a view to reducing the number of proposals.
