Published: 9Jul2019

Since our last update in February, the parties have met eleven times and the next meeting is scheduled for July 10, 2019. Discussions pertaining to non-monetary provisions are almost concluded. Outstanding items have been left as pending, subject to further consultation with the parties’ respective constituents. The parties have reached agreements in the following matters: Workload and Hours of Work, Postings/Applications and Selection and Appointment.

Discussions pertaining to Discrimination and Harassment and the accommodation of employees with disabilities have progressed. However further discussions are necessary at upcoming meetings before the parties are able to finalize agreements in these matters. Additional discussions are also required in order to finalize certain inclusions in the Workload and Applications forms.

This update is meant to inform the community about ongoing negotiations and has been validated by the union.
