Greetings Sisters and Brothers:

This is an update on the Ratification Vote that was held in early June.

We had a very good turnout for the vote. Your Bargaining Committee visited all the communities where members live and work. Two meetings were held in Swift Current and Shaunavon.

The membership gave your Bargaining Committee a very strong mandate to get back to the table in order to reach a better deal. The membership clearly rejected the Employer’s final offer.

Your Committee will be requesting dates to bargain shortly, and we plan to get back to the table in the Fall.

If you have any questions about your workplace or have issues in relation to the current collective agreement, please contact the Member Resource Centre (MRC) at 1-888-999-7348 ex. 2298. The MRC Officers will be able to assist you or will refer your question if necessary.

Your participation in your Union makes your Union strong!

In Solidarity,

The SEIU-West Chinook School Division Bargaining Committee
