Update #5 – Meetings and Ratification Vote with Quebec-Gatineau Railway


Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As you probably know, the Union and the Company have reached an agreement regarding the renewal of the collective agreement. The Memorandum of Understanding is now finalized and has been signed by the parties. We will distribute an electronic version early next week and will begin the ratification process. Here are the next steps and some information:

• Information meetings will be held on Thursday June 10 th at 7pm and Saturday June 12th at 10:00am.

• These meetings will be virtual and held on Zoom; a link will be sent to you by email.

• The ratification vote will be held electronically, in the same manner as the vote on the strike mandate. You will receive the information and instructions by email.

• The vote will be held from June 14th at 12:00 (noon) to June 25th at 12:00 (noon).

Please make sure that you have access to Zoom if you would like to join the meetings. You can do this through their website or by downloading the app.

Please also make sure to notify us of any changes in your email address since the strike mandate vote. You can reach your local representative with any questions or updates to your contact information.

We invite you to join us for these information meetings and to exercise your right to vote during the ratification process.

In solidarity,
