The parties met on November 7 and ratified the articles that had been agreed on at the previous meeting. These account for a significant portion of the agreement under negotiation. Three more articles – pertaining to grievances, disciplinary measures and termination notices – were discussed, agreed to and ratified. A few remaining articles still need to be discussed.
The next meeting is set for November 21.
This update is meant to inform the community about ongoing negotiations and has been validated by the union.
