To all NR members,

Your NR Bargaining Team is pleased to announce that on May 29, 2019 we signed a tentative agreement to complete this round of collective bargaining. The Bargaining Team would like to thank all members for their support.

We believe we have reached the very best negotiated deal possible in what has been a challenging round of negotiations. However, we will continue to push Treasury Board for further improvements in the next round of bargaining as there are still outstanding issues for some of our members.

Below you will find a list of supporting documents outlining our gains for our group.

NR Applicable Information:

We are recommending that members vote in favor of the deal.

By voting in favor of the deal, you will be helping to ensure that the significant gains made in this round of bargaining are secured.

By voting against the deal, you will be signaling a desire to pursue binding conciliation. This will further delay a final settlement and will leave the final decision in the hands of a conciliator. Ultimately, this may result in the loss of some of these recent gains.

Voting will be held from July 11th to August 2nd (closing at 12:00 PM EST).  All regular members in good standing will receive the voting instructions by email. Please ensure your membership information is up to date.

In solidarity,

The NR Bargaining Team
