Sisters & Brothers,
As you know, the Union and the Company have reached a tentative agreement. Ratification meetings have been scheduled in each of the provinces (schedule below).
For those members attending noon meetings, you must advise your supervisor and the company will arrange to take you out of the workload. Members attending noon meetings will not be compensated and lunch will not be provided. If you have to travel to attend a meeting please advise your supervisor. You are able to use your company vehicle.
As time is limited, please review the changes prior to attending the meeting and prepare any questions you may have. There will be a summary presentation of the changes, time for questions and answers, and voting will take place at the end of the meeting by secret ballot. You must attend a meeting to vote. There will be no proxy voting.
You can find the “Negotiated Language for Tentative Agreement” document on the Local 506 website at: http://www.unifor506.ca/component/k2/item/231-unifor-acl-bargaining-report

However, for members that were scheduled to work on those dates, a second set of alternate meetings have been scheduled for Feb 20th and 21st. Members attending the alternate meetings on Feb 20th and 21st must first get clearance from their supervisor to attend if they are scheduled to work on these dates. As per Bell Aliant HR, if members are unable to attend the main Feb 7th and 12th meetings due to personal reasons, then they would not be granted the meeting times on the 20th and 21st if they are working.
President, Unifor Local 506
