Hello WTEG Members,

Thank you all for your patience throughout the negotiations. It’s been a long process, as both sides are working hard to reach an agreement.

Your Bargaining Team participated in its fifth session of negotiations with CNL on May 1 through May 3. During this session, the parties continued the work on monetary and non-monetary improvements. We have reached agreements on our Work Boot Allowance, Respirator Pay, Performance Pay Career Progression Grid, and On-Call. All of the details will be provided once the negotiations conclude. We still have a number of issues remaining that we are working to resolve which includes pay.

Future bargaining dates are scheduled for July 2023. This session will be a joint negotiation including WTEG, WPEG and CNL. It will address all the outstanding non-monetary and pay issues. If you have any questions, concerns or issues that you would like your team to bring up during the negotiations, please email them to Thank you for your continued support.

In solidarity,

Your WTEG Bargaining Team
