Establishing Collective Bargaining Committees
The RCEA has served Notice to Bargain for all 6 bargaining units. While it is expected that it may be quite some time before face to face bargaining begins, the RCEA would like to start the process. Therefore, the RCEA is looking for volunteers to sit on all bargaining committees for the AD, AS, CS, OP, PG and TO groups.
As per the RCEA constitution, article 6.6, prior to each collective bargaining cycle, a new bargaining unit committee shall be established. There is not an automatic carry-over of members from the previous round or previous committee.
Members from the prior bargaining committees who indicate their willingness to serve again are welcome. New volunteer members are welcome.
Members from all locations across Canada are welcome.
If you are interested, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to specify which bargaining unit you are volunteering for.
These committees meet to prepare, recommend and finalize demands. Preparation meetings take place over the lunch hour (EST). Participation for regional members is through either teleconference or Skype. A bargaining team and chairperson is selected from those members on the bargaining committees.
