Bargaining Update - March 28, 2019

posted Apr 1, 2019, 7:25 AM by Gail Sawatzky
Thank you for your strong showing of support and solidarity on March 19.  We wore our Unifor t-shirts in the workplace; held placards and took pictures.  Solidarity goes hand-in-hand with strength at the bargaining table.


We have met with the employer on March 4, 11,12 and 13. We have yet to make any real progress on non monetary proposals with the employer.  We continue to advance the proposals you have put forward to the bargaining committee.  We have asked repeatedly for the wage package however have yet to receive it.  We meet again on April 25 and 26.  

We are asking to be treated fairly and compensated fairly.  All of you have contributed to the success of Directwest through your hard work and dedication and there is no fairness in return.

There has been much speculation with regards to the declaration of impasse at the SaskTel bargaining table.  Should you have questions on how that potentially may impact you please contact the Local 1-S union office at 306-586-7271

In solidarity

Your Bargaining Committee
