This morning (July 20) , Al Cyr and myself had a teleconference with Finning: Vice-President of Human Resources – Randy Jahrig, and Employee and Labour Relations Director – Kelly Ann Drabiuk.
We are now booked for a meeting Friday AM with Mr. Jahrig and Kelly-Ann Drabiuk. The meeting is scheduled for Friday, July 22nd. We have told Finning that it is time to get this deal done!
Accordingly, the Rally that was scheduled for tomorrow at Finning at 666 Burrard Street is CANCELLED.
The purpose of the meeting was to get Finning back into the negotiations, and we have now achieved that. We will let you know the outcome of Friday’s meeting as soon as possible.
Thanks for your ongoing support on the picket lines – we will continue to push for a resolution to this dispute.
Stay Rock Solid!
