We are finally bargaining!

We know that members have been eagerly awaiting the start of bargaining and asking many questions about when we might get a renewed collective agreement. We appreciate your patience, and please know we are moving as quickly as possible. 

We met with the employer on Jan 29, 30, and 31, and agreed on several non-monetary items. 

Our bargaining proposals are available here. We will be holding a bargaining 101 workshop in the near future so you can learn about collective bargaining and your group’s priorities. 

If you have questions or concerns, we encourage you to email the group’s negotiator, Michael Urminsky, at or the bargaining team at

In solidarity,
