Tentative Yellow Pages Sales Agreement
Local 2228 IBEW and Yellow Pages reached a tentative Collective Agreement following the extension which expired March 2013.
Due to the financial restructure, new YPG Board of Directors and Marc Tellier’s scheduled departure, YPG was required to have the terms of the tentative agreement approved at the next Board of Directors meeting to take place August 7, 2013. Local 2228 IBEW bargaining committee agreed to withhold communication of the tentative offer until it has been approved by the Board.
While this board approval process at the end of bargaining is a departure from normal bargaining processes, it seemed appropriate for the current YPG situation.
A written description of the offer will be forwarded to members by weeks’ end for review. Ratification/discussion meetings in Calgary and Edmonton are being scheduled and we are preparing for an electronic ballot vote.
Meeting notices and dates will be emailed and posted on the Local 2228 IBEW.
