Contract Committee

    Before bargaining sessions start with the Company, the members of the Contract Committee bring forward the proposals submitted by the Branches and Facilities they represent and are asked to explain the rationale behind it. After the Contract Committee has discussed all the proposals that were submitted, they will select which proposals they will present to the Company and establish priorities. A list of final proposals is officially presented to the company’s representatives at the opening session of bargaining. Although confidentiality rules apply, the Contract Committee members are expected to:

    • Make sure they understand the rationale behind proposals and defend them in front of the group;
    • Provide a copy of the final proposals list to their Branches/Facilities, after it has been presented to the company’s representatives;
    • Keep the members they represent informed of the latest development in the bargaining process.
