Hello Professional Services,

We had a day and a half of bargaining on Nov. 9th and 10th. The employer tabled a response to our Article 9 while we responded on their Article 5. There was discussion around proposal #127 from our package. Once we had clarification that the proposal would violate the Canada Income Tax Act and Regulations we where obliged to withdraw it from the table.

Bargaining in hotels is a challenge for the committee. The amount of equipment and documentation we are lugging around will have us all in traction soon.

We look forward to our dates in Dec. and continued discussion to improve the CBA.
