Bargaining Update — 12 June 2013
AD, AS and PG Groups
A preliminary hearing was held on May 21. The issues before the PSLRB were whether several of our proposals regarding Workforce Adjustment could be contained in the Terms of Reference of the Arbitration Board. Arbitration Boards are limited by legislation in what they can consider so this hearing was to determine whether our proposals, as well as one from NRC, fit within these legislative restrictions. We are waiting for a written decision. Once that decision is rendered, the terms of reference will be set and we will be able to schedule hearing dates for the three groups.
