updated May 27th, with Ratification Kit

On May 21, 2009, after only a day and a half of negotiations with the employer, your union reached a tentative agreement. Essentially, both sides cut to the chase and the employer showed a willingness to reach a deal that was fair to our members and did not include any concessions. The highlights of the tentative agreement are as follows:

  • No Concessions. All Letters of understanding, appendices and articles are renewed without change, except for the improvements listed below. This includes a renewed commitment to developing a new classification system before this agreement expires.
  • Agreement would run from July 1, 2009 to June 30, 2011.
  • 4.5% wage increase over two years, issued as follows:
  • July 1, 2009 – 1.0%
  • January 1, 2010 – 1.0%
  • July 1, 2010 – 1.0%
  • January 1, 2011 – 1.5%
  • Additional days of vacation after 16 years of service
  • Additional half day of Family Related Leave for attending medical appointments
  • Participation in Nav Canada’s self-funded leave program
  • Ability to carry over some compensatory time after year end
  • On-going contribution to the “Union Management Relief Fund”

Ratification votes for this tentative agreement will take place between June 1 and June 12. Every member will be given the opportunity to review all of the changes to the existing language and ask any questions prior to voting.

Your bargaining team worked very hard to conclude bargaining in record time, without accepting any concessions, and achieved success with several of your demands. Keep checking the web-site for further information and the dates and location of the ratification meeting in your region.
