Hello KFA Members!
The Labour Relations Code of BC states: “Either party to a collective agreement, whether entered into before or after the coming into force of this Code, may at any time within 4 months immediately preceding the expiry of the agreement, by written notice require the other party to commence collective bargaining.”
On Monday, December 3, 2018 at 11am, FPSE locals across our sector served Notice to Bargain to their Employers. This included your KFA. The Labour Relations Code of BC also states that the parties must meet within 10 days of the notice being served. Your KFA Bargaining Team will now coordinate with the employer for meeting dates in order to begin negotiations.
