2019 Negotiating Team (WRH)

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the WRH Local 101 members that took time from their busy schedules to participate in last night’s Demand Set Meeting.

We have elected a new Negotiating Team which includes – Susan Bonhert-Hamelin, Richard Baillargeon, Katie Deschamps, Tim Den Otter, Lorrie Dunmore, Lisa Mazurek and Theresa St. Denis. Congratulations to all!

The team has direction from the membership on the priorities identified in the Demand Set surveys and those issues brought forward at the meeting to raise during negotiations.

Once negotiations begin we will ask the Team to provide regular updates as to their progress.

Thanks again to all who attended, submitted surveys and also those members who were nominated but not elected to the Negotiating Team for their interest and commitment in pursuing improvements to our Collective Agreement!

In Solidarity,

Michele Buchanan
