Greetings Sisters, Brothers, and Colleagues,
Your SEIU-West bargaining committee continued negotiations with the employer committee consisting of the Sienna Director of Labour & Employee Relations Dea Mantel, and your facility manager Dianne Aasen, on April 26th, 2023. The union committee presented a package that included the issues you identified at the April 19th unit membership meeting, including a wage proposal with a pay grid. Sienna responded to the complete package late in the day, pretty well rejecting every one of our monetary proposals as well as proposals to fix the hours of work issues.
