Bargaining Committee Report




December 11th, 2006

Update Bargaining 2007


Today, your Bargaining Committee met for approximately one hour and both sides gave their opening statement. Tom Datillo and Hemi Metic assisted our local at this first meeting for the 2007 Collective Bargaining Phase.

Both sides put forth their proposals of non monetary issues with the second meeting to take place on Tuesday December 12th, 2006.

The meeting was very positive and if the meeting is a sign of what may take place in the coming weeks, we are cautiously optimistic we will sign a collective agreement that suits the needs of our local members.

As the process goes forward, we will notify you of the development that takes place in the upcoming weeks


In Solidarity, your Bargaining Committee
