Preliminary talks

It's too early to get our hopes up, but this e-mail from the Guild represents at least a glimmer of hope.


The Canadian Media Guild and the Corporation have agreed to return to the table tomorrow to begin preliminary talks on the unresolved issues. The parties, through their chief negotiators, have had some good discussions over the last few days and have agreed it's time to get the negotiating committees back together.

Smaller groups from both committees will begin the work on Wednesday morning. It is hoped the smaller committees can create the necessary dialogue that will move us towards reaching agreement on the key issues at the table.

The ultimate goal is to restart formal negotiations in order to reach a collective agreement. We welcome the return to the table and believe that, with a spirit of co-operation and compromise, an agreement can be achieved in the near future.

There is no doubt in our minds that public pressure from you, our viewers and listeners, has helped get things to this point. This isn't the time to relax: Keep calling your MPs and voicing your desire for a return to regular programming. It really does help!

We have added activism pages that go beyond "Write Your MP"

Feel free to direct people there or, if you like, I can send you the html pages so that you can add them to your site.
