CFIA S&A Group Bargaining Update # 7
The bargaining team of the S&A group and that of the employer will be meeting on January 29, 2013 for mediation. The goal of mediation is to see whether we can come to agreement on some of the issues such as call back, vacation cap, vacation leave improvement, etc. that are still on the bargaining table. The issue of salary increase and lost of severance are also on the table. This is a prelude to an arbitration hearing that will be held in the not too distant future for a final resolution to this round of bargaining. The employer has indicated that they will be filing for arbitration with the PSLRB in early January 2013. Your bargaining team continue to work on your behalf and we not be dissuaded from our goal of getting you the best resolution to this round of bargaining.
