Talks crawling, four weeks to go

MONTREAL, Nov. 29 /CNW/ – Negotiations between ACTRA and producers advanced today – at a snail’s pace – four weeks before the expiry of the agreement.
"The good news is that today we agreed to a roadmap on how to address the numerous issues on the table," said Stephen Waddell, ACTRA’s National Executive Director and Chief Negotiator. "The bad news is that we weren’t able to come to resolution on a single major issue, although we did deal with three or four minor ones. We still seem to be miles apart in substance."

The bargaining committees agreed on how to prioritize the numerous issues on the table. Discussions turned to proposals from both sides addressing working conditions.

ACTRA has applied for provincial mediation in these negotiations – and producers are so far refusing.
"ACTRA members are midway through voting on a strike mandate. In light of the producers’ proposals, ACTRA may well receive the largest positive strike vote in its history two weeks from now," Waddell said. ACTRA’s collective agreement expires on December 31, 2006.
