Unfair labour practice charges were brought forward to the Labour Relations Board this week by your Union as a result of the employers application for a vote on what the company deemed was a final contract offer. After discussions with the Union and Company in Vancouver, it was agreed the Company would withdraw the request for a vote and the Union would withdraw the unfair labour practice charges. It was also agreed that the Union, Company would resume negotiations starting on November 13th with the assistance of the mediator. Your bargaining committee remains positive that we can negotiate a fair and just agreement and will keep members informed on the progress of next week’s negotiations. Your bargaining committee appreciates all the support and solidarity you have shown on site and at our information meetings.
