Brothers and Sisters:
Your bargaining team wants to report that we have reached a tentative agreement with the Employer. Following meetings on Monday, March 19 and Friday, March 23rd, an agreement was reached we believe addresses issues sufficiently for presentation to the membership.
We will bring this package out to the members for discussion and ratification vote on Friday, March 30, 2012 at 4:00pm. This meeting will be held at the SEIU-West meeting room at 39 Athabasca Street West, Moose Jaw.
Those members working at the Central Butte Station will be given an opportunity to cast their ballot that day as well. Representatives from the Bargaining Team will come out to the Central Butte Station. We will meet with the members and allow them to consider the package and cast their vote.
We strongly encourage all members to attend this meeting. Full details of the settlement will be provided at the meeting. We want to hear your opinion of this settlement. Your opinions are important and you have the right to determine the direction of your Collective Agreement.
As always, if you have any questions, please feel free to talk with Neil or Dwight.

Neil Diacon, Unit Chairperson
