April Bargaining Update

Hello Local 52,

Your Bargaining Committee met once again with the Employer on March 26th with very little progress being made during the day of negotiations. Our Committee was provided with further information from the Employer on a number of other Articles but at this stage we still do not have a full set of proposals.

Your team has had some discussions with the Employer on our position with regards to our proposals as well as our response to some of the proposals we have received from their Committee at this stage. As well the Employer gave some responses to a number of our ingoing proposals.

We are unable to provide much more in terms of meaningful information regarding where we are in terms of the overall Collective Agreement. We are hopeful to make more progress with the next two days of negotiations set for April to be able to provide an update with more information.
Your Bargaining Committee remains hopeful even though progress may be slow at this stage we will continue to endeavor to close articles that are considered easy in order to move forward.

March 27th was spent reviewing the Employers proposals which we were unable to respond to on the 26th.

Your Bargaining Committee will be meeting with the Employer once again on April 13th and 14th.
Look for further updates after these two days of meetings.

On behalf of the Bargaining Committee
Kevin Barry
Chair Local 52 Bargaining Committee
