According to Hugh Wagner, GSU’s Locals 1 and 2 bargaining committee had a useful exchange on all bargaining issues when they met with Viterra representatives on Jan. 15, 16 and 17, 2019.
“This was the second bargaining meeting and the bulk of the time was spent on wage rates and wage increase,” Wagner said. “I think we had a useful dialogue and we’re looking forward to hearing Viterra’s response when we meet again on February 12 and 13.”
The collective agreements between GSU and Viterra expired on October 31, 2018.
A further update will be released following the February 12 and 13 bargaining meeting.
