Your employer has agreed to return to the bargaining table to try and reduce the numbers of outstanding issues prior to conciliation, which is being held on March 17th, 18th and 25th.
In the meantime, we will return to the table for one day of bargaining on Thursday, February 20th. We are hopeful that your employer will address some of the significant outstanding issues that are still on the table, including their proposed clawbacks, scheduling changes and our proposal for mandated minimum nurse-to-patient ratios.
We are also pleased to report that Robert Chisholm is now a member of your bargaining committee, and your Local President, Rebecca Norris, has joined the NSGEU for a six-week term as Employee Relations Officer servicing your Local.
If you have any questions about the bargaining process or next steps, please contact the NSGEU by calling 424-4063 (toll-free 1-877-556-7438) or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact a member of your bargaining committee.
In addition, if you have not cast your ballot in the strike vote, you have until this Friday, February 21st to do so. We will be counting the vote on Monday. Please vote so your voice is heard!
If you have any questions about the bargaining process or next steps, please contact the NSGEU or a member of your bargaining committee.
