The Canadian Media Guild’s (CMG) bargaining committee has reached a tentative agreement with CKOF for the renewal of the collective agreement which expired on May 31, 2019.

The details of the tentative agreement were shared at a general membership meeting that took place yesterday, Monday, July 22 in Gatineau. The tentative agreement includes gains in priority areas identified by members in the pre-bargaining survey.

Highlights of the tentative agreement are:  

  • 1.5% annual salary increases for the duration of the agreement which will be effective from June 1, 2019 to August 31, 2022
  • Salary progression for some employees
  • Increased Employer contributions to the group RRSP from 2.5% to 3.0% effective September 1st 2020
  • Easier access to the group RRSP for full time and part time employees
  • Employer commitment to better training for new employees and employees assigned to new tasks
  • Commitment from both sides to work together in order to clarify job descriptions by the end of the year

As a result of these important gains, the Committee recommends that members ratify the deal.
