Toronto, ON (PRWEB) June 6, 2006
The Association of Management, Administrative and Professional Crown Employees of Ontario (AMAPCEO) issued the May 2006 edition of AMAPCEO Member News last month.
The newsletter was posted on the AMAPCEO website and also was distributed in paper format to all 8,500 members plus an external distribution list of almost 200.
The front-page article in the newsletter was a report from the AMAPCEO Bargaining Team on the state of negotiations with the Ontario Government, AMAPCEO’s employer. In the article, the AMAPCEO team stated its concerns with the approach of the employer to date, including its attempts to demand concessions in the area of job security and the tabling of a proposed Essential Services Agreement (which AMAPCEO interprets as an effort to threaten potential job sanctions).
