To all SH members,

Your SH Bargaining Team is pleased to announce that on May 30th, 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 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.

We are recommending that members vote yes to secure these wins.

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 arbitration. This will further delay a final settlement and will leave the final decision in the hands of an arbitrator. Ultimately, this may result in the loss of some of these recent gains.

Voting will be held from July 15th – 25th (closing at 4 PM EST).  All regular members in good standing and members that are retired as of October 1st, 2018 to present day, will receive the voting instructions by email.

Please ensure your membership information is up to date.

In solidarity,

The SH Bargaining Team
