Bargaining Update – Cara Ryan, Lead PISPC Negotiator for the AV Group

 

Provided information on the non-monetary clauses that were added or modified in the agreement, stemming from both the central bargaining table and AV Group specific bargaining table, including those on family definition, domestic violence leave, registration fees, personal day, travel time etc.

 

Explained the economic increases and the changes that were just voted on by the Executive due to the Employer’s inability to implement the market adjustments that are not all equal.  Have to front load the economic increases for the COs in order for them not to be penalized by this Phoenix issue.
