days until our Collective Agreement expires, we are preparing, we are united and we will make change.

Change to Bid Open and Close time

Effective for the August bid period (September blocks), the bidding start and end time will change. Bidding will now open at 00:01 (Eastern time) and close at 00:01 (Eastern time). The total time available for bidding remains unchanged. For the first two months with the change in time, bidding will be available until the “old” bid close time of 08:00 (Eastern time).

What this does is provide a buffer should there be disruptions with PBS during the bid period.

Open and Close times for Training bidding remain unchanged.
