Your bargaining team will hold ratification votes across the province. Members will receive full details of the interim agreement and staff members and/or members of the bargaining team will be available to answer questions. You can vote at the time and place that is most comfortable for you. We strongly recommend that you vote “yes”. The agreement has a four-year term, starting on April 1, 2013 and ending on March 31, 2017. We are pleased to present to members this new interim agreement, which contains safeguards and progress that address all major problem areas. Some of the main strengths of this interim agreement are that the employer has sought concessions in many areas of the collective agreement, including job security, leave, bonuses and days off. We believe that this interim agreement raises many of the concerns and issues raised by members during this very tough round of negotiations. Your negotiating team is pleased to present highlights of the new preliminary agreement reached in the early hours of January 8, 2015 with Canadian Blood Services.
