Collective agreements generally include wages and social benefits. They also include job descriptions and classifications, as well as a dispute resolution procedure (usually an appeal and arbitration procedure). A collective agreement is a written legal contract that includes workers grouped into a single bargaining unit. The contract will be concluded through collective bargaining between the union and the employer. A collective agreement makes a significant contribution to protecting workers from unfair treatment. This gives us a say in the workplace, allows us to improve our working conditions and provides us with a fair way to address and resolve problems in the workplace. The bargaining committee met in Ottawa last week to review changes to the new collective agreement. In the meantime, the company and the association will be on May 11, 28 and 29. On July 27, 2015, we will attend seniority hearings with arbitrator Lorne Slotnick to obtain a final offer in accordance with Article 11.4: when the final offer is reached, we will be able to print the collective agreement in question while it will soon be available on our website. If the parties are unable to reach a negotiated solution, either party may inform the other party of its intention to refer all outstanding issues to a mutually agreed arbitrator for the final selection of the offer, and neither party will have recourse to its right to strike or lockout.
