We are pleased to advise that your Bargaining Committee has reached a tentative agreement for Service Area 9. The new collective agreement, which is subject to ratification by the membership, is for the collective agreement that takes effect October 1, 2018.
We are required by the BC Government to ratify your collective agreement by July 31, 2017 in order for successorship to be included in the Request for Proposal (RFP) that is expected to be released for your area on October 1, 2017.
All the details of the new collective agreement will be fully explained at the ratification meetings. Your committee will provide adequate time at all of the ratification meetings to explain the details and answer any questions members may have.
The ratification dates, times and locations are as noted below. Your employer has agreed to allow company time for employees that are working to travel to the yards and also company time, pursuant to the times below, for the ratification meetings.
Your committee will be recommending acceptance of the agreement and we will be counting the ballots at the end of the last location meetings for each area.
