Western Waffles Negotiation Update

August 27, 2012 at 8:19pm

Your negotiating committee has been working very hard to bargain the best possible agreement for all members working at Western Waffles.

Your committee sat in negotiations with the employer on eight occasions in May and June, 2012. We then had conciliation meetings with an officer from the Ministry of Labour on June, 20, 21, 28 and July, 18. On August 23, 2012 we sat in mediation with the employer. At this time, we have yet to reach an agreed upon settlement. Please be advised that your Union has set up meetings to prepare for strike action against your employer.
