The Contract expires in less than a year, and contract talks will commence in the fall at the latest. The members of the Scarborough Local have an opportunity to have their Local contract changes submitted to a vote at the Local level on April 11, 2006.

Employees are encouraged to submit their contract demand changes as soon as possible in writing to the Local office care of Brother Angelo Colacci. The deadline for written demands is April 04, 2006. The Local Executive Committee will review these demands and will provide a recommendation on these demands. Written demands submitted prior to this date will be photocopied and available to the members at the start of the meeting on April 11, 2006. Demands after this date must be presented verbally at the April 11, 2006 General Membership Meeting. Only Urban Operations employees are entitled to vote on these demands.

The Local Executive will be putting forward a demand around seniority issues, Continuous Service Date is your Seniority Date. All contract demands will be voted on at the April 11, 2006 Membership Meeting.

The RSMC bargaining unit contract talks have broken down, and will be going to arbitration.

You will be informed of future Contract Negotiation information as it becomes available.
