Employer not responding to streamlined bargaining proposal - Vol. 5, No. 2

Due to potential upcoming provincial legislation regarding public sector wage restrictions, your negotiating team is attempting to meet with the employer to propose a streamlined offer designed to reach a fair compensation deal for librarians and archivists by the end of May.

Unfortunately at this time the employer has not committed to meet with us to reach a timely settlement.

Recently we learned, as has been reported in some media outlets, that the government is considering wage control measures, including compensation limited to 0-1% for all new collective agreements, among other provisions.

Rest assured that UWOFA is making every effort to meet with the employer to reach a deal in a timely fashion. Please stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
