Second Update on TR Bargaining

Second Update on TR Bargaining

Your TR bargaining team met with the employer on December 18, 19 and 20, 2018 to begin consolidating their files to prepare for a new collective agreement. The parties also took the opportunity to file their respective salary proposals.

Unfortunately, it is now obvious that there is a notable gap between the CAPE’s expectations and the employer’s offer, which will be a major stumbling block for progress at the bargaining table.

Our message to the Treasury Board has always been very clear, even before the bargaining began this fall:

This message has been repeated many times since the notice of intent to bargain was sent last spring. Was it heard by the Treasury Board decision-making bodies? It remains to be seen.

In any case, we will continue to reiterate it to achieve our bargaining objectives.

The next meeting is scheduled for February 5, 6 and 7.

Stay tuned!
