Bargaining update, tentative agreement turned down

January 2nd 2024

Your bargaining committee has taken note of the membership’s clear decision to turn down the tentative agreement at  98.1% presented in December 2023. During all five special meetings held before the holidays, you were present in large numbers and clearly expressed your priorities.

Your committee heard you and is determined to continue its efforts and work on your behalf to reach a satisfactory agreement for our members.

The next few days will be crucial. Your committee will return to the bargaining table tomorrow morning, January 3rd.  These meetings will take place at the federal mediation and conciliation office.

More than ever, it is essential that members remain united and, above all, committed to the bargaining process.

As a reminder: Our strike mandate is still valid until January 23, 2024. We return to the bargaining table with strength and confidence, with the aim of reducing financial insecurity without further delay.

In solidarity

Your bargaining committee

Dominic, Sheena, Martin, jill and Marie-Hélène
