We recently wrote a letter to Prime Minister Trudeau outlining Member priorities for consideration as government prepares to launch a new agenda and mandate later this month and considers the 2021 Budget. We shared a similar letter with opposition party leaders.

Today, the Liberal cabinet members wrap up their two-day meeting in Ottawa and we have encouraged them to consider these priorities as they plan their next mandate. We will be sharing this letter on our social media channels with government and all parties and encourage you to do the same so we can make our collective voice heard.

Bargaining Video #3

Chris Rootham’s third video is below. It is a slightly shorter video focusing on arbitration which is an imposed decision if the parties don’t reach an agreement in negotiation. We will soon begin sharing the next series of videos on negotiation from Chris’ colleague, Bill Cole.

We hope you find this video informative.
