February 25, 2016


On Feb 25 our National Negotiating Committee & 3rd National Vice President George Floresco were in Richmond Hill to visit the new Retail Concept Store. The Local arranged for the Committee and George Floresco to visit WBC, 14th Ave and 31 Brodie to meet with the Members about the concessions CPC wants to impose on this round of bargaining for both Urban and RSMC.

The Members had a chance to meet our Negotiating Committee personally and voice their concerns, issues and ask questions which would be taken back to the bargaining table.

This type of engagement by the Committee and Members will only solidify our solidarity in ensuring our Negotiating Committee remains focused on listening to Members throughout bargaining and ensuring we all receive a fair Collective Agreement.

Unfortunately the Committee could not attend more Stations within the Local. The Local is currently working with the Negotiating Committee to set up another visit in the Scarborough Local.

I would like to thank the Negotiating Committee, George Floresco and the Scarborough Local Executive for assisting in these meetings along with the Brothers and Sisters of the Local for participating and voicing their issues, concerns & questions to the Committee.

In Solidarity
