On September 29, delegates and attendees participating in the 2017 National Convention rallied in front of CBSA offices in downtown Ottawa regarding the ongoing bargaining process with the government. FB members have been without a contract for more than 1200 days.
The Union sent a clear message to the Employer: Members are united and the FB group deserves a fair contract now. Among the major issues that were brought up were wage parity with other law enforcement agencies and ’25 and Out’ – the possibility of retiring after 25 years without penalty.
A video of the rally was published on our Facebook page. You can also find a few pictures of the demonstration below.
