As you are aware, your bargaining team has met with the Employer on several occasions since early 2015 in an attempt to negotiate a new collective agreement. On June 21, 2017 the Employer presented its final offer.  Unfortunately the offer fell short of what your bargaining team believed was in the best interests of the members. As a result, the parties were unable to reach an agreement. Consequently, the parties are heading to binding conciliation. Members will be advised of any new development shortly.
