Negotiations update for Fairmont Hotel members

November 8, 2010
As you are aware, the collective agreement expires on January 31, 2011.  On November 4, 2010 we held proposal meetings for all union members to review changes that we need to make to your collective agreement.  At the proposal meetings, we also asked members to advise us if they want to serve on the negotiation committee.  Under the Agreement, we are entitled to have up to 4 employees, but only 1 from each department represent members on the committee.  At the meetings, 6 members indicated that they are interested in being on the committee.  They are: Lynn Bandlow (Laundry) Efren Pagaduan (In Room Dining) Grace Fracz (Banquet) Jeff Lesany (Culinary) Lizarose Angala (Housekeeping) Inga Lasko (Housekeeping) At this time we need to finalize who will represent you on the negotiations committee.  I have enclosed a ballot and a return address envelope.  Please choose 4 of the 6 individuals, but only 1 of the housekeeping members.  The 4 members who receive the most votes will represent you in the upcoming round of negotiations. Please return your ballot by Friday November 26, 2010.  All ballots received on or before Friday November 26, 2010 will be counted. Should you have any questions, please contact UFCW Local 832 negotiator Beatrice Bruske or your servicing rep Ron Allard at 786-5055.
