The Checkpoint Volume 2, Issue 3

This picture was taken in November 2020. Prior to the current lockdown. 

During the month of January, your negotiations committee continued meeting with Garda in an attempt to attain a collective bargaining agreement. The focal point depicted on improving the benefits and working conditions for all screening officers and their families. That being said, the union has submitted a proposed package to the company with relevance in achieving a satisfactory deal. An overall review of the entire collective bargaining agreement has been concurrent during the negotiations. In conclusion, we can only achieve these goals by staying united and working together. If you have any questions or concerns please contact any member of your negotiations committee.
