CFIA VM Bargaining Update #1 – March 30 31, 2016

The VM Bargaining Team met with the employer to exchange initial proposals on March 30 and 31, 2016. Both sides presented their proposals and initial justifications for each proposal. Your bargaining team made a presentation on scientific integrity and engaged in a discussion with the employer around issues of scientific integrity. In addition we had some initial discussions with respect to the labour relations proposals that both parties are making.

The employer’s objectives in this round of negotiations relate to delivering their mandate, modernization and transformation agenda, as well as introducing greater flexibility. Your bargaining team’s objectives, based on your input include focusing on better working conditions, improved professionalism and scientific integrity and ensuring proper protection for sickness and a fair economic increase.

The next bargaining session will take place May 25, 26, and 27.
