Letter from Frank in response to “Why have your OPS Bargaining Teams . . .”

Yes, the bargaining team has decided that there is no point in trying to negotiate from the proposal the employer has put forth.

From December 3rd to the 5th OPSEU members will be asked the question, “do you want to have the employer’s initial proposal as your contract for the next four years?” There is currently no middle ground, it is either reject it for whatever reasons you may have or accept it in its entirety as is.

In order to make this decision an informed one, it is best to read the proposal over several times and think about how what the employer is offering will impact you in those four years – and probably beyond. The document is posted here on our site for you to review.

Please start reading the proposal and talk about it, ask questions and stay informed by checking back here regularly. I will have more information as it becomes available and all of your stewards will do their best to answer questions or address concerns that you may have.

Thank you.

Frank Wendling
President OPSEU Local 468
