Greetings Sisters and Brothers:
As you are aware your collective agreements are due to expire on December 31, 2014. A few months ago, we asked to complete a questionnaire to help us prepare a set of proposals for negotiating amendments to your agreements.
The Bargaining Team members have now met finalized the package of proposals and we are now waiting for word from the Employer regarding dates to begin our negotiations. We hope to be able to get started sometime in January 2015.
As we proceed, we will keep you updated on our progress. Updates will be in written format such as this. They will be distributed to the membership and posted to our website, www.seiuwest.ca. If needed, we will also hold membership meetings. These meetings will be held to seek your advice, direction and support. We hope that you will make every effort to stay in touch and abreast of our progress and that you will be willing and able to support your bargaining team when called upon.
If you have any questions or concerns about something in your workplace or your collective agreement, you are encouraged to contact the Member Resource Centre (MRC) at 1888-999-7348 (follow the prompts). The MRC is staffed with experienced Union Representatives who areable to answer your questions and if necessary will forward your concerns to the Union Rep assigned to your workplace.
If you have any questions about bargaining issues, please speak with one of the Bargaining Team members below. You opinions and input are always appreciated and welcomed.
Your participation in your union makes the Union strong.
