Border Services (FB) delegates are meeting this week in the National Capital Region for a three-day bargaining conference. Members from across the country are gathering from October 10 to 12 in order to prepare for upcoming negotiations for a new collective agreement.
Throughout the conference, the delegates are:
- learning about the collective bargaining process,
- reviewing bargaining proposals and discuss priorities,
- developing mobilization strategies, and
- electing their bargaining team members.
Treasury Board signed their most recent agreement on July 3, 2018.
