Civeo Bargaining Update March 10, 2021
We finally met with the company last week after delays on their side; the bargaining committee was able to make some progress.
We were able to make headway on cost relief for the members on benefits. We have not finalized this process yet, but we anticipate delivering a 15% members’ savings to their benefits-cost. A 15% savings would represent a $0.53 an hour gain for Civeo members. If we successfully finalize this process, your benefits administrator would change, but your coverage will stay the same.
Unfortunately, we were not able to get the company to agree to the key gains you have identified for us:
Linked below are the union’s proposal on these topics. We have proposed a substantial wage increase and an increase in your travel allowance. We are hopeful of getting an offer from the company on all of these factors in mediation.
We have committed to the membership to get an offer from the company for you to decide on before taking a strike vote. We have applied for mediation and will present the companies best offer to you for consideration.
Thank you to the membership. You delivered a strong message with our strike vote survey. We have communicated your 97% willingness to go on strike if you do not receive a fair offer from the company. We are hopeful that they will heed your warning and present an acceptable proposal; if they do not, we have a 100-million-dollar strike fund waiting for this fight.
Your Negotiating Committee
