When GSU’s Local 15 bargaining committee met with Nutrien representatives on June 5, the company presented what they call their final offer.
GSU has provided members with details of the offer. We are also holding video calls and a conference call to review the company's offer and answer any questions members may have before they vote to either reject or accept the company's offer.
“Ordinarily, we would hold membership meetings and an in-person vote. With Covid restrictions in place we are using video and telephone conference calls to meet with members, and a two-envelope postal ballot system to conduct the vote,” said GSU bargaining spokesperson Dale Markling. “Obviously we would prefer to meet members in person, but we are fortunate that technology allows us to meet virtually and have them vote in a way that maintains strict confidentiality.”
A voting package was sent to Local 15 members on June 12. Members who have not received the package by June 22 are being asked to contact their staff representative.
The deadline for receipt of the mail-in ballot is July 3.
