The contract committee met in Ottawa over the past number of days. Both teams put forward significant efforts towards reaching an agreement prior to the March 31st expiration. The vast majority of the non-monetary issues have been to the table a number of times and most have been concluded.
NAV Canada has advised us that they will present a comprehensive monetary package for our consideration on April 7th.
The Contract committee will be travelling home for the weekend then reconvening in Ottawa next week to finish outstanding issues and consider this offer.
Continuing with our past practice the contract committee will not be making any statement about progress until the tentative agreement is finalised.
Thank you for your continued patience as we work towards an agreement.
