Hello Full-Time & Part-Time members!
We are pleased to announce that a majority of FT-PT members have voted in favour of ratifying the Tentative Agreement presented to you at ratification meetings held this week. The Tentative Agreement and a summary were sent to you by email if you would like to review.
This round of negotiations was important because you organized to achieve important gains that we must continue to build on. The campaign against contracting out and for future bargaining power continues. Next round, the focus will be on winning fair wage increases after 3 years of being subject to Bill 124.
The struggle continues!
During the ratification meetings, we provided sign-up forms to become stewards and join the Good Jobs Action Committee. The committee will help implement some of the gains won in this round, and help build power for the next round.
If you did not submit the form and are interested in becoming a steward and/or joining the committee, sign up here.
