It’s that time of year again: lots of holiday celebrating, cooking and shopping. Staying active during the busy holiday season can be particularly difficult.

Start of negotiations with AGSEM invigilators

The first meeting was held on June 12.  The parties introduced their respective negotiating teams. They exchanged their set of proposals and discussed how the bargaining process should unfold. The parties also agreed on a shared communications approach throughout the bargaining process.

With these major parameters having been established by both parties, they set the order of discussions to be held during the next bargaining sessions and they agreed on a calendar of negotiations during the summer. Specific dates have already been set, leading up to September.
