First Week of Contract Bargaining Concludes


The CUPE 227 bargaining team met with the Employer Bargaining Team (Ashley Kendell,
Karen Kearney, Colin Waddell, Shawn Rowe, and Rollie King as their chief negotiator) on
February 21st, 2024 to exchange bargaining proposal packages.

On February 26th the Employer took a day to review our proposal package as it was substantial.
On February 27th and 28th the two teams met to discuss the proposal packages.

Productive and open conversations were had on large bargaining priorities for both parties.

Further bargaining dates are scheduled for March 7th and 8th, 2024. A further update will be
