Local Bargaining Update-October 17, 2022

Oct 17, 2022

Your Local Bargaining Committee- Tim De Vivo, Tim Chester, Harjit Khangura, Antoinette Cominetti and Livia Hisaoka- have met with VSB representatives for several collective bargaining sessions, with more scheduled through to early December 2022. 

To date, the Parties have signed off a few items, however, there remains much work to do at the bargaining table.  Regretably, despite this being a “post covid” round of bargaining, the VSB has tabled a number of contract concessions, something that was not seen at the provincial bargaining table during the negotiation of the Provincial Framework Agreement (“PFA”).  

On your behalf, the employer has been told we will not accept concessions.

We have three more bargaining sessions with the VSB scheduled in October, two scheduled for November and one in early December.

Please check this site regularly for local bargaining updates.

Thank you,

Your Bargaining Committee
