Union Elections

Kal Tire Bargaining
On Monday August 16th our committee met with Kal Tire and the Mediator. This was our first session of bargaining after the rejection of the memorandum. We have made it clear what the members want in order to get a deal ratified based on what you told us through your survey answers. We had productive discussions throughout the day between the parties and are awaiting a response from Kal Tire. The second mediation session has been postponed as Kal Tire is working on a response to the feedback we provided from the surveys. We anticipate a response soon, and will update you when we do.

Your Union committee is meeting soon to work through the package we received from your employer. We are also awaiting information we have requested from Kal Tire to bargain intelligently. ...continue reading
