Lucky 13?

  • They’ve agreed we can approach them with requests to work out of office periodically, without any guarantee that they have to approve any such requests.
  • Withdrawing our proposal for the creation of a professional development fund, something our employer does not currently offer staff;
  • Withdrawing our proposal for an employment expenses discretionary fund, that would allow staff to make periodic small, non-essential purchases of things that would help us do our jobs better (ie. a task management app subscription). Again, this is something our employer does not currently have and would not benefit us personally, just allow us to do our jobs a bit better;
  • We dropped a proposal that would have erased about $5000 owed by staff to 4600 as a result of 4600 botching our taxes two years ago. We’ve been waiting more than a year for 4600 to uphold up it’s end of a grievance settlement on this issue, which they are required to do before staff repay the owed amounts;
  • We dropped a proposal that would have allowed our childcare benefit to accrue during vacation leave;
  • Withdrew significant elements of our discipline and benefits proposals.
  • Please share this update with your pals and comrades on social media, with a note saying you support a #fairdealfor5;
  • Stay tuned to this page or our Twitter and Fbook feeds for updates;
