Roofing Bargaining Update – May 27, 2022

Notice to all members of Sheet Metal Workers International Association employed in ICI Roofing in the Province of Ontario

The Roofing Negotiating Committee and your Ontario elected leadership are writing to provide the most recent update to 2022 Roofing Negotiations. Your Negotiating Committee met with representatives from the Roofing Employers’ Association on Thursday May 26 and Friday May 27, 2022.

On Friday May 27, 2022, the Union and Employers met with the Ministry of Labour Conciliation Officer (the Government Appointed Mediator) in an effort to reach a Tentative Agreement.  These mediation efforts were unsuccessful. The Negotiation Committee is not prepared to accept the current offer proposed by the Roofing Employers’ Association.

The Negotiating Committee will be meeting with the Employers’ Representatives again soon.  However, we have requested that the Minster of Labour issue a no board report.  It is likely we will have this report soon.  Once we receive this report will be in a legal strike position as early as Monday June 20, 2022.  While we are hopeful we can negotiate a Tentative Agreement that our members will agree to ratify, we are not there yet.

Your Negotiating Committee will provide a further update on negotiations as information becomes available.

Please return to this webpage or your Local’s website and/or social media for all future updates.

In Solidarity,

Roofing Negotiating Committee
