1. Bargaining Survey
The principal question is whether or not to settle the question on the route. There is no rush on deciding on the route at the moment.
Will not be putting in notice to bargain until fall.
The survey left out some things in the comparisons to the two routes. (Conciliatory Strike vs Arbitration)
If we decide to go with a singular survey, one of the things missing was that members would be informed that there is no strike unless members vote for it. Believe that has been added.
Robert was good with splitting the surveys
There is also talk of having info sessions to provide information for the members and that they are recommending the most beneficial to us.
If the question is not on the survey, then we will need to have another meeting to figure out logistics.
We could bring it to the AGM, where we could ask the members to reconsider the passed motion from previous AGM. 2/3 majority would be required to reconsider it. If not passed at the AGM, we can send out the survey after the AGM.
Discussion on survey. It is split on whether or not we need to survey routes during the bargaining survey. The decision taken by the Executive is that it should be separate from the bargaining survey.
Suggestion of side by comparison of the routes which will allow for better comparison.
It is a decision of targeted bargaining vs regular bargaining.
Timelines for the survey: The survey will be distributed to the members by end of the week.
