From December 6-16, 2018 the FSA ran an all-member survey to prepare for bargaining. The survey FAQ was posted on the FSA blog and the results were provided to the FSA Collective Agreement Committee to utilize in preparing a package of bargaining proposals for approval by the FSA membership at the January 23, 2019 general meeting.
Call for Suggestions for Bargaining
In Oct 2018 the FSA opened an online suggestion form for members to submit suggestions. This form remained open until Dec 2018 when the FSA Collective Agreement Committee began to formulate proposals utilizing input from the members, FSA staff, and the broader labour sector.
Not all bargaining updates are posted to our blog. Some are sent directly to FSA members by email.
