I’m pleased to inform you all the contract offer has been accepted so we are officially ratified.Please watch for an email from the company that will state on what cheque you can expect to see your 1.75 percent raise and on which cheque you can expect to see your retro pay.Please ensure you check those pay stubs to make sure you are getting the increase and retro pay. Sometime people get missed so please double check so we can get it rectified quickly.
I would like to thank all of you who came out to vote. It is an important part of the negotiating/bargaining process so thank you for being there.
Lastly, a huge thank you to the two members of the executive: Richard Benoit (VP CGY), Dawn Beattie (Chief Steward EDM) and to the two members at large: Matt Burlet (CGY) and Cam Wiebe (EDM) for volunteering to sit on the bargaining committee. They gave up time with their families to help negotiate this contract and their efforts are much appreciated.
The changes will now be added to our CBA and then it’s off to the printers. This process might take a couple months but we’ll try to get it done as quickly as possible.
