Greetings Sisters and Brothers,
Your Extendicare Bargaining Committee has met with the Employer and has reached a memorandum of settlement.
The Bargaining Committee met with the Employer on December 7 and 8. The Union and Employer committees exchanged proposal packages and we met several times over the two days to discuss our proposals and present counter offers. After multiple rounds of negotiations we were able to reach a tentative agreement that we are prepared to share with the membership.
Your bargaining committee will be setting up virtual membership meetings in the near future for sharing and discussion followed by electronic voting on the tentative agreement.
As always, we welcome our members’ questions and comments as we work through the bargaining process. We encourage you to contact the MRC at 1-888-999-7348 ext. 2298 or through the website contact form or our new email address [email protected] to ask any further questions. Please watch for updates on SEIUWEST.ca. You can also follow our Facebook and Twitter feeds.
