Bargaining update

To All Local 4392 members
As you all know we have now been without a contract for more then a year.  Talks have been going slow while we waited to hear about funding and then once funding was announced to get direction from the Ministry about how much and how it would be spent.
We met with CLGW yesterday in conciliation to try and come to a settlement.  Unfortunately we were unsuccessful.  As you can imagine CLGW’s huge PE liability is effecting the bargaining process.  We have another date set for May 1st.
We would like to meet with the membership on April 27th at 6pm at the Wellington County Museum in the Nicholas Keith Room.  This is not a vote but rather a chance for us to give you an update about local negotiations as well as whats happened at other tables in the province.  This meeting is to ensure the members have the opportunity to meet with us face-to-face to ask any questions.  Its important you attend to be aware of the issues and possible outcomes.
Thank you and we will see you there
