Our contract with the Government of Yukon expires December 31, 2018. Both the employer and the union have expressed a desire to have a new contract in place prior to the expiry of our current agreement, so work is well underway.
Our Bargaining Conference (Pre-Bargaining) took place September 6 and 7 in Whitehorse. At that session, all submitted proposals were discussed and debated by Local representatives, and bargaining priorities were set. Elections were held for both non-monetary or Pre-Bargaining, and main table teams, along with alternates for both groups.
Bargaining Dates have already been set, and the first round of Non-Monetary talks will commence October 9th - 11th.? The main table groups meet November 7 and 8 for the initial exchange of packages, and main table bargaining dates are scheduled for November 20-22. If needed, the groups will re-convene mid December.
