Bargaining Update - July 13, 2018

posted Jul 13, 2018, 2:17 PM by Recording Secretary   [ updated Jul 15, 2018, 6:55 PM ]
As you are aware our DirectWest Collective Agreement will expire March 19, 2019.  The original expiry date was March 19, 2017 and has been extended twice to maintain existing language and benefits with no 3.5% rollback of wages and benefits.

Our plan is to go into full negotiations with the company as there are potential strategic advantages.

The first part of the process will be to gather new proposals from you the members to determine priorities as we enter bargaining.

The second part will be a screening caucus in the fall to review all proposals and put together a final list of proposals to be exchanged with the company.

The last part will be the exchange of proposals and the beginning of bargaining with DirectWest.

Proposal gathering will be open from July 16, 2018 to September 14, 2018.  

The forms will be available on our Local 1-S website.  Please fully complete the forms and ensure they are submitted on time.  

If you have any questions, please contact the local office – 306-586-7271 or email

In solidarity
