Our PSAC/UCTE Bargaining Team met  with the employer November 22-24, 29-30 and December 1, 2016.  While some progress was made during this time unfortunately it came to a halt on December 1st . The Team provided a comprehensive proposal that addressed all of the outstanding items including a fair monetary proposal that reflected the value of the work members perform at YVR. The employer chose not to respond and broke off bargaining. PSAC/UCTE will now apply for the assistance of a Federal Mediation Conciliation Officer.
