Negotiations update for Visions of Independence members

July 28, 2011
After holding proposal meetings to see what changes you would like to see to your contract we have had two days of bargaining. The tone at the bargaining table was respectful and many of the non-monetary issues have been dealt with. Unfortunately we were not able to continue bargaining due to the untimely passing of one of our members in Portage la Prairie, while her co-workers and management would like to pay their respects today. Condolences go out to Suzanne McLaughlin’s family from our union at this difficult time. Our next meetings will be held August 9, 2011 when we hope to be able to discuss the more difficult topic of wages. We believe that we will be able to bring you the best wage package possible under the circumstances your employer is faced with. The union will keep you updated on bargaining as the process continues.
