January 11, 2019
CATCA and NAV Canada met in Ottawa January 7 – 11 and opened the first full week of negotiations.
We had a positive start reaching tentative agreements on a number of non-monetary, secondary issues. The week can be summarized as productive and the tone at the bargaining table was positive and collaborative. Both sides listened to the concerns of the other party and creative approaches solved a number of issues.
NOTE: No agreement on any issue is final until a full settlement is reached and all items agreed to may be changed on the context of a final settlement. Also, no details on agreements reached will be published or shared until a final agreement has been reached.
The next session of talks is scheduled for January 21-25, 2019 in Ottawa.
We take this opportunity to thank our members for their patience and support and again ask our members to respect the confidentiality requirements that bind the contract committee members.
On behalf of the Contract Committee,
Peter Duffey Doug Best
President Executive Vice President
