Official OPSEU confirmation that the Government has signed off on the 2009-2012 Corrections Division Contract. I don’t expect a hefty backpay cheque.
Now we get to start preparation for the 2012 OPS Contract Bargaining Season. The next four years are going to be the furnace that will forge the next contract. We are going to have to heat this contract until it glows and hammer it into a shape that is going to work for us. Every sentence and every phrase will have to be tested. Every presumption by Management with have to be challenged.
It ain’t over until we say it’s over.
