Notice of General Membership Meeting

June 2016

 


 
All members are hereby advised that the following motion brought by the executive board to increase the arbitration fund assessment from 0.33% to 0.66% will be read in at the January General Membership Meetings and voted on at the February General Membership Meeting:

MOTION: That the arbitration fund assessment be increased from the current rate of 0.33% to 0.66% effective March 1, 2016 and that it remain at that level until such time as the minimum account balance requirement in section 9 (l) of the Local Union Bylaws is reached.

REASON: The arbitration fund had a cash balance of only $323 as of the end June 2014. The arbitration assessment had been removed by the former Executive Board in April of 2013 such that there had been no money coming into the fund since that date to replenish it and restore the minimum account balance to the $100,000 level required by the Local’s bylaws. In April of 2015 the current executive restored the minimum assessment of 0.33% for the arbitration fund. Since October of 2014 the Local has experienced significant legal costs in defending the collective agreement and in fighting the termination of several of our members. With several arbitrations over terminations set to proceed early this year, the launch of a major unfair labour practice complaint against Greyhound in December of 2015, and contract negotiations coming up in a year’s time, your Executive Board expects that costs for legal services will continue to increase for the time being. It is for this reason that the Executive Board is seeking your support for this motion so that we can continue to fight for your rights under the collective agreement and to protect your jobs.
