Bargaining gets underway in Local 4 (Grain Millers)

GSU’s Local 4 bargaining committee and staff rep Steve Torgerson met with the company’s bargaining committee for a bargaining session Feb. 12 and 13  in Yorkton.

In addition to exchanging bargaining proposals, the two sides participated in frank and open discussions which yielded some understanding of the company’s position.

“Although we had two good days of negotiations and some understanding of what the main issues are for the Company, we still have lots of work to do,” said Torgerson.

The next round of negotiations are scheduled for March 26 to 28 in Yorkton.

Updates will follow.
