Parks bargaining team update

Our bargaining team met with the employer this week from July 11- 13, in Ottawa. 

The meetings provided us with an opportunity to clarify our position on a number of our proposals, including Maternity and Parental Leave, Injury on Duty Leave and Family-Related Responsibilities Leave.  We also worked to strengthen the language of our Appendix “K”, Work Force Adjustment (WFA) provisions.

Although further pay notes were presented by the employer during this round, a complete set has not as yet been tabled by them. The Agency also provided us with their position on a number of union proposals that they had not yet responded to.

We will next meet with the employer during the week of September 19, in Ottawa.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.
