Good evening all. 

 Negotiations went well today!  We went extremely late to get as much done as possible.  

 We will continue early in the morning but continuing with a ministry appointed mediator as there are some stumbling blocks. 

 I will send another update tomorrow as things progress!  

 We are close. 

 Stay strong, focus on your jobs!

Well the first week of negotiations are done and it went well but more to go. 

 ArcelorMittal Long Products Canada has opted to join the “Community Vaccine Program”. See poster below for more information. 

 Next weeks pay will be on Wednesday June 23, a day earlier due to the Quebec stat holiday. 

 We will be scheduling a membership meeting at the end of June but the agenda will be the international elections nominations only. 

 On behalf of the local, we wish all the Dads, a Happy Fathers Day!

 The negotiating committee will begin preparations next week. We will be off but available for emergencies. 

All but 3 grievances have been settled. We have reserved the right to arbitrate these grievances. One termination grievance is scheduled for arbitration. Those that have filed grievances, will be notified by one of the grievance committee members on the status of their grievance once the final document is signed. Should be on Monday.

The company and Union are in the process of a negotiations protocol, where, when, and  how. 

We should finalize details next week. Negotiation surveys are being handed out and are also attached here below. Please do not send it back through email. Print it off, if you didn’t get a hard copy, and hand a copy to one of the Chief Stewards or myself. We will collect them over the next few weeks so please fill it out and give your negotiating team some direction.
