Purolator Bargaining Update

Our Bargaining Conference was held last October (21,22) in Vancouver.  Delegates to the conference reviewed over eighty proposals and a final package of proposals was adopted and prioritized by the delegates in attendance.

The following bargaining team and alternates were also elected at the conference.

Bargaining team:  Joanne Hay Corinne Holzworth and Jen Horsley. Alternate team members are: Kathy Horst, Karen Hirst, Lori Bradbeer

Bargaining was held in Vancouver March 22 and 23. PSAC and Purolator exchanged proposals and held preliminary discussions.

While we are at the beginning stage of bargaining, you should know we are quite concerned about some of the Company’s proposals, which among other concessions includes the removal of the Retirement Allowance.

The Union team will be providing a detailed bargaining update at the AGM on April 14h and  the Union proposals presented to Purolator will be made available at the same time .

Next bargaining dates are scheduled for the week of May 22-25 also in Vancouver. In the meantime, remember, the provisions of your collective agreement remain in effect while we are in negotiations.

In Solidarity
