Disappointing Opening Offer

SIAST tabled a wage increase of 1, 1.5 and 1.5 for each year of the collective agreement. However they also stated that if we wished to improve any of our benefits or pension it would be costed from this 4% meaning that the actual wage increases would be lower if any benefit was improved. Very disappointing for all the members of the bargaining committees and I believe it will also be disappointing to the members.
