The Employer has invited your Bargaining Team back to the bargaining table on Monday, November 7th 2016.
Please come out and support your bargaining team and have a coffee break with your colleagues next Monday morning.
At the Queen Street site, the coffee break will be held in the Oasis room, which is located on the ground floor of the Bell Gateway Building behind the Out of this World Café.
At the College and Russell Street sites, the coffee break will be held in the cafeteria located on the second floor of the Russell Street site.
The coffee breaks at both sites will take place from 9 30 AM to 11 30 AM.
Breaks were negotiated into the Collective Agreement a very long time ago, and are your right.
We encourage you to always exercise this right, as well as all your other rights under the Collective Agreement each and every day you come to work.
Did you know: If all members of Local 500 took their breaks and lunch every day, the workplace would quickly descend into CHAOS due to the amount of free labour we have been giving the employer for many, many years!
Amongst the outstanding items the Bargaining Team will be negotiating are wages, research, and contracting out.
As we return to the bargaining table, your Bargaining Team is as always committed to negotiating a fair and reasonable Collective Agreement for all members of the bargaining unit.
Please contact any member of the Bargaining Team with questions or concerns.
