Negotiation Preparations are Well Underway at Maple Leaf

June 7, 2019

Your Maple Leaf Brandon Union Negotiating Committee (see names below) met on Wednesday, June 5th and Thursday, June 6th to prepare for the upcoming negotiations meeting with the Company.  

Your committee reviewed the submissions received from the ballot box suggestions from the plant and all e-mail submissions.  We will be meeting with the Company’s Negotiating Committee on Wednesday, June 26th and Thursday, June 27th to exchange proposals.

The Union has an extensive proposal package and we expect the Company will also have lengthy proposals for us to review. 

As we are going through the negotiations process if you wish to receive updates by e-mail please contact your Union Representative, Brenda Brown at  and provide her with your e-mail address.  Alternatively, you can also check the Local 832 website:  for negotiations updates.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at 204 786-5055 or email me at

In Solidarity,

Jeff Traeger,



Your 2019 Maple Leaf Bargaining Committee
