We have an update about the EPEW grievances.
As you know, the employer’s deadline to provide a response was today; however, we have agreed to extend the timeline to July 19, 2019. To date, Tom and Anna have met with the employer on two occasions. We would characterize the discussions as positive and productive, which is why we have agreed to the extension.
Due to the large number of grievances received, we agree that it makes sense to group and review grievances by position i.e. janitor, cook etc. At this point, we have not dug into the meat and potatoes, otherwise known as financial compensation, of the grievances. We expect that compensation, if any, will be tied to position. I sense that the employer may be willing to move on some and not others, although, this is merely speculation at this point. In the end, each individual grievor will have the right to accept or reject any proposed settlement.
We appreciate your patience and support, and we will update you again as things develop.
