IBEW Atlantic International Representative, Brian Matheson and myself, negotiated on Monday, May 28th with representatives from Emera, PowerTel, K&M and the Executive Director and President of the Electrical Contractors Association of New Brunswick (ECANB).
We had a full day of discussions on important issues and obstacles in the industry.
The meeting, this time, was facilitated by Lise Lepage from the Industrial Relations Department of New Brunswick at the request of the union and required by law if deemed necessary by either party.
No tentative agreement was reached. The province’s representative suggested that both sides meet again and try to reach a deal, both sides agreed. The next meeting is scheduled June 15th.
If you would like to help in negotiations or have a question, please contact me.
