About the Support Services Division

Contract Updates

Hollingsworth Private Sector MTESC

We have been in contract negotiations with this unit attempting to get an initial contract for these members. These negotiations have been very challenging. We have run into many obstacles while attempting to achieve a fair agreement. This process has taken over one year. Currently, we are almost complete and we hope to get a tentative agreement before the membership for ratification very soon.

IT/AS

This CBA expired January 20, 2019. We have extended talks and continue to work towards a negotiated contract. The parties have been meeting continuously and exchanging proposals.

Postal Nurses (NPPN)

This CBA expired August 18, 2018. The parties have been meeting and have extended the terms of the CBA until such time that either party declares impasse or mediation. This negotiation process has been slowed by the fact that the Postal Service has had three changes in upper Management responsible for the decisions regarding the nurse positions. The parties are now close and we hope to have a CBA in place that retroactively compensates our Occupational Health Nurses for their hard work.
