Our PSAC/UCTE bargaining team met with the Employer January 29 - February 2 in Ottawa. While the pace was slow, we were able to exchange vital information with the Employer, negotiate terms, and sign off on additional language changes to the collective agreement.
Greg McGillis, PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President for the National Capital Region, joined the team this week and was introduced to the Employer's negotiating team.
We have requested further information from the Employer to help our bargaining team finalize a comprehensive monetary proposal.
Both sides have committed to meeting at the bargaining table May 7-11, 2018 in Ottawa. In the event a tentative agreement is not reached in May, we have set aside June 6-9, 2018.
Our team would like to thank you for your patience and support. We will continue our efforts to negotiate the best possible collective agreement based on the bargaining input received from our members.
