Core-Mark (Calgary and Edmonton)

    Members at Core-Mark have a variety of duties which include warehousing, product selection and truck driving and as a result have some unique issues that require intervention and focus on through the negotiations process.

    The union and the company negotiating committees recently met to continue negotiations after having previously met to exchange proposals. Many of the union’s proposals had been gathered from the members who work at Core-mark, which is a standard practice when going to the bargaining table with any Company. Initially the parties will use the first few sets of meetings to work through the non-financial proposals, or the ones not specifically related to money. Once that is done the union and company committees will move on to more sensitive matters that typically take more effort to resolve, like wages and benefits.

    Currently we have bargaining dates set for Feb. 24-26 in Calgary.
