Commercial Ratification Vote / Amalgamation Meeting

Posted on: 06-Apr-2018

Commercial Ratification Vote

The Commercial Negotiation Committee and I have negotiated a Commercial Agreement for your consideration.

At the Commercial Ratification Vote the proposed changes and new wage sheets will be available for you to review for the first half hour, then we will go through all the proposed changes and answer any questions. Following the review and questions there will be a secret ballot vote.

Commercial Ratification Vote

-         Prince Albert – 7:00pm Friday April 6 at the Prince Albert Inn 3680 2nd Ave w.

-         Saskatoon – 10:30am Saturday April 7 at the Ramada Inn 806 Idylwyld Drive North.

-         Regina – 3:30pm Saturday April 7 at the Union Hall. 1355 11th Ave       


Following the ratification vote there will be a special called meeting to discuss the upcoming elections and a recommendation from the executive board to amalgamate the Business manager and Financial Secretary Treasurer positions.  If a motion is made and passed by the membership the nominations in May will be for a combined Business Manager / Financial Secretary Treasurer position.

I know that together we can make a difference, and I look forward to seeing you in the near future.

In Solidarity
