As you know, the Electrical Contractor’s Association of NB (ECANB) provided a proposal to IBEW Local 37 during our negotiations. ECANB asked if we would take it to our members for a vote.
We let ECANB know that we could not recommend the offer to our members and suggested that IBEW and ECANB go to conciliation to help with negotiations before a vote is held.
We have been waiting a long while for conciliation meetings to be scheduled, and have decided that in the meantime, a vote on the proposal WILL be held next week.
Based on my meetings and phone calls with members, I am quite certain it will be made clear to ECANB that their proposal is unacceptable.
I encourage you all to please take time to go and cast your vote at one of the locations below. Please note that you can only vote once. To review the summary of the offer click here.
