Finning Bargaining Update – May 8

Attention Bargaining Unit Employees

The Union and the Company Bargaining Committees met 3 days last week, Monday thru Wednesday.

The discussions included were regarding breaks, stat pay, accommodations, OT bank, meal and tool allowances, classifications, probation periods, postings, vacation, sick leave, recall, apprentices, and the ThinkBIG program.

A number of Letters of Understanding that were no longer applicable were not renewed. Other letters were amended to reflect their current practices. Monetary items have not been discussed to date,

Your Bargaining Committee has made it clear to the company that the employees #1 concern is job security. Secondly that there is no appetite to go backwards this set of negotiations.

Next bargaining dates are May 29, 30 and 31 then the week of June 26. Any questions? Contact your Regional Bargaining Committee Representative.
