Bargaining reaches impasse, town halls to be held

Your bargaining committee reached an impasse in negotiations with the employer following our last round of negotiations on May 8 in Edmonton.

Unfortunately, there are several items, including health benefits, we are still far apart on. As a result, we will pursue an Essential Services Agreement (ESA). An ESA is required before legal job action can take place. It governs the terms of a strike or lockout in the event one should occur at AGLC. Once we have an ESA in place, we will seek a mediator to assist in moving bargaining forward.

Your committee will hold a series of town halls to provide members with important information:

May 23, 2019 – Edmonton, AUPE HQ at 5 p.m.

May 28, 2019 – Red Deer, AUPE regional office at noon

May 28, 2019 – Stettler, Stettler Rec Centre at 6 p.m.

May 29, 2019 – Calgary, AUPE regional office at 5 p.m.

 

It is IMPORTANT you attend. Food and beverages will be provided.


There will be a teleconferencing option available for the Edmonton and Calgary town hall dates for members who cannot make it to any of the town halls.


Dial-in number: 1-866-365-4409


Access code: 2544516


You may contact your bargaining committee members for further information.

Local 050 now has a Facebook Group!

Want to be notified immediately when there is a meeting, a local 50 event, or the next bargaining update??? Join Local 50's Facebook Group.

The Group is closed for only Local 50 members and AUPE executive. Please be patient as it may take a few days to be approved to the join the group. 

After two days of minimal dialogue your Bargaining Team is disappointed to report that there has been little to no movement on the outstanding articles and package as proposed from October. Though the employer’s counter on our proposal had some positive changes, no meaningful addendums to the critical components of our agreement have been achieved. As such, many of our asks are continuously met with resistance as what appears as means of maintaining power and control.

The direction and climate of negotiations is approaching a point of stagnation as we head into the Christmas break. We remain committed to advancing the needs of the membership but are concerned on future developments.

No dates are scheduled as of yet for the new year.

Chapter 1 is having a general meeting on November 28, 2018 @ 5 pm in St. Albert. Check your Union Boards for further details.

Thank you

If you have any additional questions or concerns, please contact a member of your Bargaining Team.
