Ratification date set. Following the government’s appointment of a conciliation officer to assist with negotiations and your outstanding strike vote, your union negotiating committee met with the conciliation officer. Telephone discussions following that meeting resulted in your Employer tabling a position which resulted in a tentative agreement being reached subject to your ratification. The new collective agreement is being compiled. A ratification meeting is scheduled as follows.

Employer delaying negotiations. Thank you for your 100% strike vote on April 15th, 2008 and your outstanding support of your negotiating committee. The conciliation officer has not yet been successful in getting the employer to respond to the union’s proposed changes to your collective agreement. During our last conversation with the employer’s legal counsel, the union was told that they were “waiting for instructions from their client”. The Dawson Road collective agreement has been ratified by the union members.

Letter to members of Versa-Cold Dawson

Your Employer has faxed us a final offer which they want the Union membership to vote on. Although it does not cover the mandate you gave us at our last union meeting (September 10th) and the union negotiating committee has told the Employer they will not be recommending the acceptance of the offer, legislation requires the Union bring a final offer to the bargaining unit for a vote.
