VIUFA’s Collective Agreement expired on March 31, 2022. VIUFA’s Bargainer (Jane Wodlinger) is the Chair of Contract Negotiating Committee/Bargaining Committee.  Prior to commencing bargaining with the Employer, a Contract Negotiating Committee is formed to meet with the membership and develop new contract proposals.  They also oversee negotiations with the Employer’s representatives.  The Bargaining Committee negotiates the renewal of the Collective Agreement.

The Bargaining Committee includes:
Jane Wodlinger (Chair)
Gara Pruesse
Clay Armstrong
Bonita Davidson
Jamie Wood
Neil McLeod (Staff), Labour Relations Advisor

This committee has been meeting weekly with the employer since January 2023. VIUFA will be issuing a bargaining update to its members soon.
