Hello All,

As most of you are aware, our collective agreement expires on 30 September 2018. Your Bargaining team has prepared a survey at the following link https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/VFWDCHY and I`d encourage you all to take a few moments to complete the survey for your Bargaining Team. Your input will provide the guidance they need as they enter into negotiations with Treasury Board later this year. There is also a section at the end for you to provide specific comment on issues of personal importance as they pertain to your collective agreement.

In order to encourage your participation your Halifax NR Sub-Group is offering a draw for an allegedly fabulous prize that is open to survey participants. In order to enter, send an email to the undersigned at David.Rutherford@forces.gc.ca to advise that you have completed the survey. Also include (if possible) the Sub-Group code word which is revealed at the end of the survey in your email.

The last day to complete the survey is 31 August 2018. With only 140 or so members in our Sub-Group the odds of winning are quite good.


Dave Rutherford

President, Halifax NR Sub-Group
