Joint Proposal: Tentative Agreement Reached

The Electrical Trade Bargaining Agency (ETBA) of the ECAO and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Construction Council of Ontario (IBEW/CCO) reached a tentative Joint Proposal earlier this month.


It has been sent out to IBEW members and ECAs for ratification. If ratified, local bargaining will take place between November 2, 2018 and January 18, 2019 with the assistance of a mediator if agreed upon by the area ECA and local union. Provincial bargaining is scheduled to take place the week of February 11, 2019.


If you are interested in learning more about the history of Provincial Bargaining between the ETBA and IBEW/CCO and the Joint Proposal (no strike/no lockout agreement), Scott Thompson of Hicks Morley submitted an article in the last issue of our magazine, with Part Two being published in our upcoming issue.
