The PIPSC NAV CANADA Group Bargaining Team was in meetings with the company from May 8-11, 2017. On Friday May 12, 2017 our team worked in closed meetings on our bargaining priorities. The parties continued discussions on numerous items and positive progress was made. Both parties presented comprehensive packages however no final offers have been made. The parties will be meeting on June 5 and 6, 2017 in a smaller group to work on a comprehensive package in hopes of resolving our remaining interests.

Your Bargaining Team is focused on the priorities we established based on your input from the October 2016 survey. We will keep you updated on all bargaining activities as they arise.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail ( or by phone at 613-761-2891.
