Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from April 17 to 19, 2018. Apart from holding discussions on issues common to the Field and Office units, we also held separate discussions for each unit, in order to properly deal with issues and proposals that are specific to each one.

For the Office unit in particular, we signed off on Article 38 on Leave for Family Related Responsibilities.
