SGI Bargaining Update
As we see our allies at UNIFOR taking job action, many of you have been wondering if we’re next.
Your Bargaining Team is committed to upholding the mandate that you have given us. No Cuts, No Rollbacks!
The Government (Personnel Policy Secretariat) meddled into the bargaining process, but we are back to the table. Both your bargaining team and the employer’s bargaining team have committed to meeting on many more dates including weekends. We can tell you that the employer has withdrawn a number of their original proposals directly related to your mandate.
We are progressing and as long as there is movement in our favour, we will continue at the table.
We are also watching very closely what is happening with our UNIFOR allies whom also represent Crown Employees. We stand in solidarity with them. We ask that all of our members to do the same.
Please consider being part of the Job Evaluation Committee. Details are on the website.
Please attend your Local and Sub-Local General Membership Meetings for further updates.
Together we are stronger!
