As you may be aware the current APOC Collective Agreement expires on March 31, 2018.
We need to be cognizant of what we bring to the table, and be prepared for what we anticipate and suspect will be some difficult and complex discussions and topics from the Corporation.
The APOC negotiating team will be formally meeting the week of January 23, 2017 to prepare and organize.
Be advised that all BRANCHES will be holding a special membership meeting between now and the end of March 2017 to collect any negotiation demands (schedule to follow).
The Request to the APOC Bargaining Team is on the website under the tab “documents – Collective Agreements” for all members who wish to bring their suggestions to the special membership meeting or submit to the Branch President prior to the scheduled meeting.
The Negotiation Team
Joseph Blanchard, Alain Lamarche, Lyle Drouillard, Dana Leblanc, Guy Dubois, Michael Ling and George Rontiris (legal counsel)
