Finning Bargaining – Update Apr 18/19

Attention Bargaining Unit Employees


The Union and the Company Bargaining Committee met Tuesday and Wednesday this week to get a further understanding of their respective proposals. The Company provided clarity on a number of their proposal positions including temporary transfer language, bank time provisions, benefits information, recall, classifications, and apprentices. The Company asked for clarity on Union proposals regarding shift selection and notification, overtime distribution and travel time.


The Union provided the Company with clarity on some of your proposals, hours of work, call time, statutory holiday pay, leave of absence, call in, bereavement, PPE/First Aid and seniority recall/retention.


We were able to agree on language changes that reflected current practice and to clean up some redundant language and typos.


Next bargaining dates are May 1, 2, 3 and 29, 30 and 31
