NRC IS/LS/TR Bargaining Update #2
The IS/LS/TR bargaining team has agreed to go to arbitration to settle our collective agreement with the employer. The team is disappointed by this turn of events, but it has become clear that Treasury Board has limited the bargaining mandate of NRC so much that it is impossible to negotiate anything beyond simply giving up your severance pay for what Treasury Board says it is worth. Many other groups have successfully obtained other things at arbitration and the bargaining team is hopeful that we can get something in addition to what Treasury Board is offering via an independent arbitrator. As the application process unfolds we will keep you informed.
