The government is finalizing a settlement in response to our Union Initiated Grievance regarding our right to negotiate the SWB deployments. We anticipate it being finalized in the coming days. We hope to be able to negotiate as many aspects of these deployments as possible. We will be preparing a questionnaire so that we better understand what the bargaining members would like to see negotiated.
Once these negotiations are concluded, we anticipate the same process in Spokane and Havre. Both chiefs have shown a willingness to come to the table and negotiate ways to make these deployments better for their agents.
