Special Meeting Notice- Tentative Agreement & Voting

Our Local wage delegates, along with those of the other Unifor Locals, have reached a tentative agreement with Catalyst. This agreement will be presented to the membership at two special meetings.
The meetings will take place on Monday June 25, 2018 in the afternoon at 1pm and in the evening at 7:30pm. Our area rep and the wage delegates will attend both meetings to answer questions about the proposed collective agreement.

The membership will then have three days to think about the tentative agreement before making a decision. Voting on the agreement will take place Thursday, June 28, 2018, at the Hansen Hall, which will be open for this purpose from 2-7pm. This is not a meeting, just a vote.

All Members of 592 should attend a meeting and later cast their vote.

June General Meeting

The next General Meeting is scheduled for Monday, June 18. 7pm at Hansen Hall. We are looking for members in good standing who would be interested in the Financial Secretary/ Treasurer or a Trustee position on the Executive.

The previous strike vote was suspended, as the company reached out to the Unifor Locals with bargaining dates. This past week our wage delegates, along with the other Unifor Locals, have returned to the table to bargain with Catalyst over main wage & CCAA items.

We hope to have good news soon from our wage delegates. Please attend the general meeting!

Local 592 will be holding a vote to give our wage delegates a strike mandate. Two special meetings will be held on Wednesday May 30th, at 2pm and 7:30 pm. Voting will be held at each meeting.

Ongoing contract negotiations have reached an impasse, with no further negotiating dates set. The Catalyst Locals wage delegates have decided to move to the next step.
