Sisters and Brothers:

As you are probably aware, negotiations broke off on March 23nd and both sides agreed to apply for conciliation.

There have been few new developments since the last update.  The Department of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour has appointed John Green as the conciliation officer and we are looking at the end of May to meet face to face.

Because of this development, we have had to change the Education Day for this year’s AGM, which is scheduled for May 23rd. The new topic for Education Day will be “STRIKE PREPARATION”. It is very important that your Local sends delegates to this year’s AGM as we need to start preparing for the possibility of not reaching an agreement in conciliation. Some of the topics that will be covered are National Strike Guidelines, Strike Pay, Strike Tactics, and Essential Services.

Should you require further information or have questions, please contact one of the members of the Provincial Executive.


In Solidarity,


Your Negotiations Team
