To all Members.
Spring is here and in a year (March 2009) our collective agreement will expire. We need to be proactive and prepare ourselves for the next round of negotiations
In order to be proactive, we are involving all our Branches and Members on gathering their demands on changing and adding for the new contract. On the next page, you will find the day(s), the site(s) and the time of your Branch meeting(s). 
Also you will find in the section “Documents” a form that you will be asked to use to put your thoughts to change/add to the collective agreement. We are asking you to use this form and to fill out and include as much information and detail as possible. You can make a photocopy of this form if you have any other demands/requests. Please bring the form(s) or arrange to have a copy delivered to the Branch before the scheduled meeting. 
The Bargaining Team will be elected at the beginning of June and will begin working and preparing the list of demands in August. We will be looking to start bargaining with the Corporation around the end of September.
I want to thank you in advance for your involvement in this important topic. Together we will prepare our future.
