ICI Bargaining Update

ATTENTION: Brothers and Sisters,

The membership of LiUNA voted overwhelming in favour of rejecting the employers’ offer to renew the ICI Collective Agreement and the Delegates to the OPDC voted to reject the offer in accordance with the will of the membership.

Although we are currently in a legal strike position, the employers’ have agreed to pay retroactive wage increase to May 2, 2022, if we continue to work. We have scheduled bargaining to continue on May 19 or 20, 2022 and we are committed to negotiating a wage increase that is fair and reasonable. Therefore, we will continue working until our next scheduled bargaining dates. If we are unable to reach a reasonable settlement, our negotiating committee is authorized to call a strike. We will update you by no later than May 21, 2022.
