Collective Bargaining

We are celebrating big wins at the central bargaining table!

You give your best in your workplace and to your family, each and every day. We went into these negotiations to get a central agreement that acknowledges and supports this – and we got results.

Some groups have tentative agreements now and others continue their important work at the bargaining table.

Members across Canada are voting YES to ratify their group’s new collective agreement and secure the central and group-specific wins.
