Your bargaining committee last met in June for preparation of bargaining proposals. Since then, Kelly Ritcey, your Employee Relations Officer (ERO), requested and was granted a year-long leave of absence. The temporary vacancy created by Kelly’s leave was posted and we have very recently hired a replacement who will hopefully be able to move into the ERO role within the next few weeks. In the interim, we have assigned coverage of your Local to other EROs on the Healthcare team. Our Labour Resource Centre (LRC) can direct your email queries or calls to the appropriate ERO.
We continue to plan for negotiations with your employer. We have scheduled a date for the Bargaining Committee to finalize negotiations in late October, and contacted your employer yesterday (September 27th) to inform them we hoped to be able to schedule a date to exchange proposals for late October or early November.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact a member of your bargaining committee:
