After over a year of delays from NRC, PIPSC and RCEA met with the employer on Thursday December 13th. The employer had not yet received their mandate, and therefore the discussion was somewhat limited but productive nonetheless. High level conversations covered each side's concerns.

The WFA is negotiated outside the collective agreement and historically in tandem with RCEA as well. Representatives from RCEA were: Joan Van Den Berg (negotiator) and Marvin Zaluski (RCEA VP). For PIPSC it Patricia Polowick (RO Saskatoon), Marc MacMaster ( RO Ottawa), Suzelle Brosseau (negotiator). The employer was represented by Amy Campbell (negotiator), Emily Harrison (acting VP HR), Betty Rodriguez (senior labour relations) ,Ben Nadeau (Labour Relations), Sophie Shortliffe (policy administrator), Anthony Galipeau (coop student).

The next meeting to be held mid-February 2019.

We wish you all a great Holiday Season.

Your team,

December 2018
