Information regarding City of Edmonton Negotiations will be posted here.
Your committee has been hard at work over the last few months meeting with members to hear and understand their concerns in the workplace and our Collective Bargaining Agreement. After several days of meeting with members the committee created a survey based on what we heard at the public meetings and to gather additional information from those of you who couldn’t make it out to speak with us.
Our committee has reviewed the survey results and has reviewed the entire collective agreement line-by-line to determine items of importance that we would like to see changed or added to the collective agreement. We are currently working on putting our bargaining proposals together and we hope to meet with the City in April to exchange proposals and start negotiating.
Your City of Edmonton Negotiations Committee is:
- Joe Childs, Chief Negotiator/Spokesperson
- Amanda Pickett, Labour Relations Officer
- Tracy Foran, CSU 52 City of Edmonton Unit Director (City Operations)
- Jared Cutting, Member-at-Large (Edmonton Police Service)
- Jennifer van Popta, Member-at-Large (Urban Form & Corporate Strategic Development)
City Members (including the Edmonton Police Service), the current Collective Agreement between the City of Edmonton and Civic Service Union 52 expires on December 22, 2018. Your Negotiations Committee is preparing for negotiations and we need your input. To do so, we are conducting a survey.
We ask that you take your time in completing the Negotiations Survey, as we need to enter the negotiations process well informed and with real examples of issues that our Members are facing.
The survey must not be completed during regular working hours – please use your own time before or after work, or during your scheduled work breaks – the survey is smartphone compatible.
Accessing the Survey
- Go to: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/CSU52-City2018
- A case-sensitive password is required to proceed. If you did not receive an email with this information, please contact the Union Office at 780-448-8900 or email@example.com
- You will have until 4:30 p.m. MST of Friday, December 14, 2018 to complete the survey. After this time, the survey will be disabled. Please note that it will take 5-10 minutes to complete. If you exit the survey without completing/submitting it, you will lose your answers and will have to restart the survey.
