S&A Group- Bargaining update # 16:
Well fellow members of the S&A group, nothing has really changed from our last communication with you (Bargaining update # 15). The waiting game continues. At this time there has not been any communication from the employer regarding the ratification of the tentative agreement we agreed to in February 2014. Over one hundred days have elapsed and we still do not have a clear idea where the delay on the employer side is: Is it at CFIA level, Treasury board or at the Governor in Council level? We have been without a contract for over THIRTY TWO months. Based on the speculated time line sent out a while ago there is still time for this contract to be ratified and retroactive pay provided before the end of the summer, but time is running out. We will keep you informed on any development in this soap opera.
