The MEIBC Settlement Agreement: 1 July 2014 – 30 June 2017 was signed by all six party trade unions at a Main Agreement Negotiating Plenary meeting yesterday.
SEIFSA signed on behalf of the 24 federated Associations and confirmed that two Associations were still involved in internal mandating processes.
The Border Industries Employers Association (BIEA) representative was not present at the meeting. NEASA did not sign the Settlement Agreement.
The Bargaining Council will, in the next two weeks, convene a Management Committee Meeting to ratify the Settlement Agreement, confirm the position of the two outstanding SEIFSA Associations and adopt a resolution to have the Agreement extended to all non-party employers and employees in the industry.
SEIFSA recommends that the increases be implemented from 1 July 2014 for all scheduled employees who worked during the strike and, in the case of those employees who participated in the strike, from the date of signature of the Settlement Agreement, namely 29 July and/or from the date of their return to work.
