The parties met twice, on September 18 and 25. Discussions were focused on the grievance and arbitration process, and on the clause regarding discrimination and harassment. Significant progress was made in discussions on the grievance and arbitration process, and the question of delays remains outstanding – this subject will be discussed at a later date. The parties agreed on the text of the clause on discrimination and harassment; a final bilingual text will be confirmed at the next meeting, on October 2.
