CUPE 391 General Meeting – Bargaining Proposals Ratification
Maritime Labour Centre
Sunday, December 4 @ 6.30 p.m.
1880 Triumph Street
Five years and a bit of time have passed since we last ratified bargaining proposals. More people participated in the survey this time and were very clear on what our issues should be. The Bargaining Committee sorted this information and found that members as a group were consistent in what you wanted to protect and expand. All will be revealed at the meeting as we are not inclined to share bargaining strategies with the Employer. Other information will be sent through your CUPE 391 e-mail. Please write to info@cupe391,ca or firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having trouble accessing your address.
Note: the Job-Share Committee would like the opportunity to discuss proposed changes the Job-Share Letter of understanding. There are some interesting proposed changes that offer some advantages to part-time and auxiliary members.
It is vitally important to our local that our members show up and ratify what you filled in the surveys. With the seven day week it becomes more difficult to find a time that is outside of libraries hours of opening. Sunday, December 4 @ 6.30 pm is not ideal but it is the only time that we can all be together at a civilised hour. Bargaining contract language governs how we are paid, what we are paid, our quality of work life balance and the kind of public service we can offer our citizens that we serve with integrity, respect and pride. Please come on Sunday to the Maritime Labour Centre, have your say and vote on your future.
