Following almost two years of negotiations between the parties, an agreement in principle was reached on July 9th in presence of the Conciliator appointed by the Ministry of Labour.
The parties’ negotiation committees have agreed to recommend the contents of this collective agreement to their respective constituents, and to keep the details confidential until the Union has had an opportunity to share them with its members.
The Union’s executive will submit the terms of the proposed collective agreement to members for ratification in the month of September and a vote will be held on September 30th. If ratified, the new collective agreement will remain in effect through July 31, 2023.
