CFTPA to set the record straight

TORONTO, Nov. 3 /CNW Telbec/ – Once again the CFTPA and the APFTQ are urging ACTRA to put and end to the rhetoric and misinformation and return to the bargaining table in order to continue discussions.

The Producers’ Associations remain ready and willing to bargain. However, the disingenuous statements from ACTRA – who are still insisting that the producers remove all of their proposals as a precondition to bargaining – mean that we can’t take ACTRA’s statement that it wants "stability in the industry" very seriously. The CFTPA and APFTQ are obligated to set the record straight on the misinformation coming from ACTRA.

Once it was clear that ACTRA was filing for conciliation the CFTPA and APFTQ proposed that ACTRA use the same nation wide mediator as has been used in the past. ACTRA rejected this proposal and instead has advised the CFTPA that it intends to file for conciliation in every province in Canada. If ACTRA

is serious about bargaining, it would agree to the single national mediator instead of taking this step toward attempting to shut down the industry with a strike.

"ACRTA says it has offered a safe harbour agreement or continuation letter, but that’s simply not true." said John Barrack, chief negotiator for the CFTPA "What ACTRA is proposing is the implementation of its proposals without negotiation in exchange for labour peace, which is further evidence of their failure to bargain in good faith." Barrack adds "The Associations’ have proposed that the CFTPA/APFTQ and ACTRA enter into the same type of safe harbour arrangement that was agreed to in the last two rounds of bargaining.

This would ensure labour stability and keep projects in Canada that might otherwise go else where. ACTRA refused this arrangement as well".

As a result of the actions taken by ACTRA, the CFTPA has filed an unfair labour practice complaint with the Ontario Labour Relations Board alleging that ACTRA has failed to bargain in good faith. The CFTPA and APFTQ are urging labour peace before any more projects are lost as a result of this unnecessary

dispute.
