Report on Bargaining – Southeast Cornerstone (June 10 2013)

Greetings Brothers and Sisters:

Your Bargaining Committees is pleased to report that we have achieved a tentative agreement with your Employer.  We met with the Employer over four days this past month, the last being Wednesday, June 5th.  During these four days we focused on the monetary issues (wages, benefits, pensions, etc.).  By the end of this long day, we had reached agreement on the issues and are now prepared to bring the tentative agreements out to the membership for consideration and a ratification vote.

We have scheduled two meetings for the membership of both Units to attend to hear about the Agreements and then to vote on them.  These meetings will be held as follows:

  • Monday, June 24th – Estevan Comprehensive High School
  • Tuesday, June 25th – Weyburn Comprehensive High School

Both meetings will be held at 7:00pm.  All members from both Units are encouraged to attend whichever meeting they prefer.  This is your only opportunity to vote and you must attend one meeting or the other in order to vote.

Copies of the Memorandums of Agreement will soon be in the hands of your Bargaining Team members.  You have the ability to speak with them and see what these Agreements have that will impact you before coming to the meetings.  While we did not get everything we had hoped for, your Bargaining Teams are somewhat satisfied with the end result but, the final decision is yours to make.

Please note: As there are two distinct Agreements, there will also be two separate ratification votes and the results will be tallied separately. 

The two Agreements are almost identical with only minor exceptions to address specific issues related to each work situation.

We strongly encourage you to come out to the meetings.  It is important for us to hear your opinions and concerns.  We look forward to seeing all of you on June 24 or 25.

In solidarity,
