Your bargaining team met with the Employer’s representatives On December 12 & 13 to negotiate the monetary issues.
We are pleased to report that these negotiations have resulted in a tentative agreement. Your bargaining team will be bringing this tentative agreement out to you for discussion, consideration and a ratification vote.
As you know our goal entering this round of negotiations was to achieve equality with the Employer’s other Regina facility, the Marian Chateau. We have been successful in bringing both the language of the Collective Agreement and the rates of pay in line with that of the Marian Chateau. Unfortunately we were not able to get the term of your new Agreement to the same term as the Marian Chateau.
The full details of the settlement will be provided at the meeting to be held on Monday, December 23rd at 8:00 pm in the Dining Room at the Bentley Hillsdale.
Your bargaining team believes this is the best Collective Agreement we can achieve at this time. We appreciate the support you have provided over the course of these negotiations. We hope to see you all at the December 23rd meeting.
