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

Surplus Update 3

As many of you are aware the Union is working through LOU 60 with regards to further mitigations for the May 2020 block month forward.  The current Off Duty Status as per LOU 6 that many of you are on is for the April 2020 block month only.

The Union and the Company have received many questions regarding the summer SPLOA’s and Reduced Block Program, which, as you know, has now been closed.  The Union and the Company are working on putting together a package to move us forward with mitigation options.  We have had multiple productive meetings over the week with the Company and our hope was to have more in depth information for everyone this weekend, but both sides want to ensure that we are looking at all available options.  At this time, we still require further discussions prior to coming out with any mitigation package and we are now looking at later next week to have further information for our membership.

We appreciate that this is a time filled with uncertainty and we want to assure you that we will get you the information as soon as available.

In solidarity,
