Dear NR members,

As you know, your NR Bargaining Team reached a tentative deal on May 29th for a new collective agreement. Members will have the opportunity to ask questions and express their opinions at the “Town Hall Meetings” that will take place on Wednesday July 10th.

The ratification vote will be held from July 11 to August 2.

We know that summer is not the best time to be holding such an important vote, but we have no choice if we want to sign a new contract before the federal election is called.

To ensure we can reach you with your voting package during the summer vacation season, please provide your preferred email address.


We encourage you to use a personal email rather than your employer-provided email account to protect your privacy. It will help ensure we do not lose touch if there's a change to your work email address.

Thank you for your collaboration. Have a great summer.

Hugo Buttau
NR Bargaining Coordinator
