Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
Your Holy Family Roman Catholic Bargaining Committee met with the Employer on March 16th and 17th. We are pleased to announce that the parties have reached a tentative agreement.
As you all know, every school district in the province recently received a letter from the Ministry of Education setting out very specific cost containment directions, which could include concessions from their employees.
We believe this tentative agreement meets your goals and objectives. While general wage increases were not achievable at this time, we did not agree to any concessions and were able to protect all the benefits and privileges you currently enjoy.
Your committee will be holding membership meetings to ratify the tentative agreement in:
- Estevan: Tuesday, March 30, 2017 at 4:30 pm
Legion Hall: 1317 – 4th Street
- Weyburn: Thursday, March 30 Weyburn at 6:30 pm
Legion Hall: 150 – 3rd Street
Please make every effort to attend one of the two ratification meetings to hear the information presented, and vote on the tentative agreement.
We would like to extend our thanks to you, our colleagues and fellow union members, for your support and encouragement. Your participation in your Union makes the Union strong.
Your Holy Family Roman Catholic Bargaining Team: Lori Ladouceur (Unit Chair), Michelle Hall (Vice-Chair), Robin Hein (Workplace Communicator), Joanne Loberg (Workplace Communicator)
SEIU-West Staff: Shelley Johnson (Union Representative) & Rebecca Kram (Negotiations Officer)
