Bargaining news – Update #15– July 29, 2021

PSAC finally ratifies the settlement

The new collective agreement is now fully effective as of July 20, 2021, the day the settlement was ratified by the Alliance Executive Committee (AEC) for the employer.

All provisions of the agreement are effective as of that date unless other dates have been agreed to, e.g. the salary increases and the special pension allowance. 

The new agreement in the works

The new clauses and articles in the agreement have been translated and we expect to receive a copy of the new agreement for review and proof reading before too long.

In solidarity – and for the last time,

Amy, Erna, Louise, Victoria, Michelle

Unifor Local 2025 believes that every individual has the right to dignity and respect, both within the union and in the workplace. Discrimination and harassment are totally inconsistent with the principles of union solidarity, dignity and respect. Local 2025 does not condone any form of oppression, be it like discrimination and/or harassment within the workplace or the union.

It is the employer’s responsibility to create and maintain a workplace free of any form of discrimination and/or harassment. Local 2025 has a role in making sure the employer meets that obligation and that neither undertake actions or inactions that cause further harm to those experiencing discrimination and/or harassment.

Orange Shirt day graphic

In the past number of days, Unifor has received a number of requests for Every Child Matters t-shirts. It is not surprising that Unifor Locals have wished to express their solidarity with Indigenous peoples and communities at this time of heartbreaking grief.

Orange Shirt Day is held annually on September 30th across Canada to honour the experiences of former students and survivors of the residential school system and to promote awareness about the residential school system and the harm it has had and continues to have on Indigenous communities.

These t-shirts which are union made in Canada and available in English or French can be worn now and beyond Orange Shirt Day September 30th to demonstrate your commitment to Truth and Reconciliation.

Good afternoon,

We are happy to share the results of the ratification vote.

94.5% of the membership voted to ratify the collective agreement.

Your bargaining committee and executive are delighted with the support we have received through this process and with this ongoing show of solidarity and unity.

In Solidarity,

Content Warning: Mentions of Violence, Genocide, Racism, Colonialism, Islamophobia, etc.

Let us begin by offering our sincere condolences to all those who are mourning the losses of loved ones, family and community at the hands of white supremacy, colonialism, through murder, genocide, terrorism and hate.

Every child matters

From the office of the National President Jerry Dias:

Unifor mourns the loss of the 215 children found on Tk'emlúps te Secwépemc territory who perished in the custody of the Kamloops Indian Residential School.

The discovery confirms what community survivors have said for decades—hundreds of children went to the school and never returned home. This is true of at least 6,000 Indigenous children who attended residential schools across the country.

The mass grave is a horrific reminder of the scale of the colonial violence that still haunts survivors and their families today.

Good afternoon comrades,

May 2021
