IS Bargaining Update #5

The parties have now established an arbitration board and selected arbitration dates. The arbitration panel is composed of Ian Mackenzie (Chair Person), Guy Lauzé (Employer Sides Person) and Larry Robbins (Union Sides Person). Arbitration dates are April 8, 9 and 28. We hope to conclude the arbitration in two days, but a third may be necessary. On a separate note, the hearing will address three contracts for three groups at the NRC, IS, LS and RO RCO. This way we expedite all contracts at the same time.

The Bargaining Team knows that members are anxious to have the contract resolved. We have been trying to resolve the contract. In December, we met with the employer to narrow issues and explore possible settlement options, but still to no avail.
