Dear Members of CEP 247,
Your Executive Board announces with great excitement that both the Agent/PR and Office Staff contracts have been ratified as of March 2012.
We have had the great pleasure of meeting with many of you during our trips to all the provinces in our jurisdiction where AIL has operations. We felt that discussing the changes and upgrades to our Collective Bargaining Agreements would be best done in person to allow for more dialogue. Our intention was to include everyone and open the floor to matters that are of importance to you.
It was a very positive experience and given the overwhelming responses from the votes, you have told us that you are extremely satisfied with the new contracts. Of course there are some of you who could not make the meetings, which is why we make ourselves available to answer any questions you may have about the new contracts.
We have also implemented regular General Membership Meetings to allow for an opportunity for us to connect once a quarter. We look forward to a great 2012!
Your Executive Board
