Last week at the negotiating table, we discussed working hours, overtime and employee wellbeing. Part of the focus of the discussions is to ensure the Corporation meets its obligations on working hours under the Canada Labour Code.
We also talked about ways to ensure members can record – and get compensated appropriately for – all the hours we work, as well as about scheduling and time off. These discussions are slated to continue when we return to the table the week of November 5.
Among other issues still to come in this round of negotiations are discussions about improving conditions for non-permanent employees, and our pay and benefits.
We are engaging in an interest-based bargaining process. That means both union and management lay out concerns and issues, we each identify our interests and then seek common ground to find solutions. Our conversations with management have been frank and honest so far, and we’re working hard to improve conditions in our workplaces.
