At the union’s request, the parties returned to the bargaining table on April 5, 2019. The intent of the meeting was to continue discussions about the union’s pension proposal. While discussions were cordial, unfortunately we did not make any progress.
The Essential Services Tribunal will continue in May and June with closing arguments scheduled for June 14, 2019. We can expect a decision from the Tribunal at the end of June or early July. No job action can be taken until a decision is reached.
No further bargaining dates are scheduled.
