More discussions with SEU (trades) on temporary alternative work arrangements


Published: 19Dec2014

The parties met on December 17 to discuss whether a temporary alternative work arrangement (TAWA) could be considered as an adequate vehicle to address the union’s proposal to reduce work hours prior to retirement and to address work-life issues with regard to their work schedule.

The parties examined the parameters of the TAWA offered to some other employee groups and discussed at length its applicability within the various trades groups.  The parties agreed to further assess this possibility and to pursue the discussion at the next meeting, scheduled for February 3, 2015.

The 4 bargaining units involved in these negotiations are employees from trades and from powerhouse downtown, and employees from trades and from powerhouse Macdonald campus, represented by SEU, local 800 (Service Employees Union, local section 800, affiliated with the Quebec Labour Federation).
