Good day everyone:
First I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for attending ratification, this was a large and engaged turnout. I am happy to report that the vote has passed with seventy-three (73%) voting in favour of the package.
This will now have to go to City Council for approval and then implementation, which should occur at the end of April.
I want to thank our Bargaining Committee for the months of work that went into this and getting to yes. This Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) marks a shift in a lot of ways as well as substantial movement towards parity, which lifts our entire Membership.
Thank you everyone,
