Bargaining Update Region 6 : 3 September 2021
We had our first meeting with the new bargaining agent that Transit Systems have employed to run the bargaining.
Unfortunately, it was a compete waste of time and once it became clear that the bargaining agent didn’t have the information she needed the RTBU contingent left the meeting. The meeting ended soon after.
We’re hopeful the next meeting will be of more substance, but the Union has concerns about the process. The bargaining agent has been hired for 6 meetings over 6 weeks but nothing more, and there’s no way that an agreement can be reached in that timeframe.
Members need to gear up for some form of Protected Action to push the company into treating this process seriously.
