Your PSAC/UTE bargaining team met on February 16th and 17th. As was indicated in the Feb. 5th update, this meeting was to have discussions to evaluate our position as a bargaining team and determine next steps. We also discussed future actions to demonstrate support for the team. More information on this will be shared in the coming weeks.
Our National UTE President, Brother Bob Campbell, has received a reply to his letter to the Minister of National Revenue. This reply was received on February 11, 2016. In light of this response, Brother Campbell was scheduled to meet with the CRA’s Commissioner, Andrew Treusch on Thursday, February 18th. No update was available prior to the issuance of this memo.
We are hoping to be back at the bargaining table – with an employer that is finally ready to negotiate with us – in the very near future.
Once again, we want to thank all the members who have shown their support through the grievance process, writing and/or visiting your MP and writing the Commissioner. Please see a member of your executive to file a grievance or find out more about these campaigns in support of the bargaining team.
