Bargaining between the Union and Employer for the renewal of the Collective Agreement is now underway. On November 30th, 2017, Union Representative Ryan Stewart and Vice President Alicia Gallo met with the Employer for an initial exchange of proposals.
Subsequent to the initial bargaining session, member Johnny Jordan was appointed to the Union Bargaining Committee. Union Representative Stewart and Johnny Jordan will constitute the Bargaining Committee for the remainder of the process.
As discussed at the membership meeting on November 29th, 2017, the Union is advancing proposals on all of the major areas of concern identified on the bargaining surveys by members at Richmond Taxi. We are also seeking to reorganize the Collective Agreement and clarify much of the language to make it more user-friendly. We look forward to reporting progress on many of these items in the near future.
The Union and Employer are scheduled for two full days of bargaining next Wednesday, December 13th and Thursday, December 14th. You can expect a further bargaining bulletin after that time.
Your Bargaining Committee:
Ryan Stewart, Union Representative
