12 Sep Atu 107 Collective Agreement
Members of amalgamated Transit Union Local 107 overwhelmingly supported and voted in favour of adopting a new contract between the union and the City of Hamilton. The new agreement was presented to union members on Monday, with a vote today. “I am proud to announce that the union has officially approved a four-year collective agreement with an 83 percent democratic vote for acceptance,” Eric Tuck, president of ATU Local 107, said in a press release posted on Twitter on Dec. 27. The city and the union had already announced a preliminary agreement on December 18, but had not made the details of the agreement public. The union, which represents 800 Hamilton Street Railway (HSR) bus drivers and mechanics, says its members voted to ratify a new collective agreement Friday night. In November, HSR drivers, mechanics and administrators voted overwhelmingly to reject a previous urban contract offer, following disagreements over wages, benefits and access to toilets for drivers along many bus lines. The union, which represents 800 Hamilton transit workers, ATU Local 107, announced Friday that it has voted to ratify a new collective agreement. In a statement, Eric Tuck, president of ATU Local 107, said members have formally approved a four-year collective agreement with 83 percent for it.

Your bargaining team has officially started collective bargaining! The Starlite Drive-In contains between 900 and 1000 cars in three screening areas. Since the sound of their movies is transmitted by an FM signal, everyone in a car equipped with an FM radio should be able to adjust the audio part of what we plan for speeches and potential entertainment during the drive-in, regardless of the area in which you land. Five places to celebrate this year`s New Year in Hamilton This is our plan for Work Day 2020. It`s not perfect, but it`s flexible at a time when we don`t know what`s going to take next week. We will probably be as much as possible in the outer right lane. We will drive between 15 and 20 km/h, which will allow us to travel the route in about 45 minutes. We suggest that as soon as the fork to the right of Queenston Rd. on Centennial Parkway, the formal caravan is ready and vehicles can travel the rest of the way to the drive-in at their own pace or go where they are going.
WE CANNOT guarantee that unions can be in a predetermined order during the caravan or be parked side by side on the drive-in. The best chance to make sure of this is to simultaneously enter the parking lot of the town hall and have a parking lot close to one another. When a second wave occurs and we are limited to our cars, listen to the radio and eat a picnic with family or a friend, we are covered. We currently have scheduled 8 more dates in February and March.

The following plan will allow, according to public health decrees and all levels of government, different degrees of social distancing at that time.. . .
