Bargaining is underway

Tuesday Members’ Memo – Feb. 13, 2024

The Local 19 bargaining committee, comprised of Colter Spence, Lindsay Hill, and Mason Van Luven, were scheduled to meet with the Prairie Cooperative bargaining committee on Feb. 14 and Feb 15. The Company cancelled the second day of bargaining to review and cost the union’s bargaining package. Feb 28 and 29 have been tentatively set as dates to resume bargaining.

The current collective agreement expired Oct. 31, 2023.
