Federal Government Bargaining Update #2
Your negotiating team recently completed another week of bargaining with government representatives.
Although this past week of bargaining was considerably more productive, the employer is refusing to abandon their demands for concessions on severance pay. We understand this is an important issue for the employer; however every benefit has its price and so far the government has failed to show the creativity necessary to reach an agreement.
No further negotiations are scheduled at this time but the union is in discussions with the employer on future bargaining dates.
