On Friday at 4 p.m., the vote to ratify the tentative agreement reached with the Employer on March 5, 2018, came to a close.
I am pleased to announce that our members have voted in favour of approving the agreement.
We are currently in the process of establishing a date for the formal signature of the agreement, and will let you know once we have more information.
As with other federal collective agreements in this round of bargaining, ours is set to expire at the end of June this year. We are set to begin consultation with the membership to establish next steps and the priorities for the next round of bargaining. We will keep you updated as developments warrant.
I would like to salute the Negotiating Committee, whose dedication and hard work over the last three years that has led us to this new collective agreement. We can all take pride in the advancement of our profession as reflected in the gains made through this agreement.
Congratulations to all,
