It is easier to implement because it came from them. They understand the Agreement, they understand the conditions. So it makes more sense that it comes from a bilateral level. It is easier to implement… that is one, and the workers themselves own the agreement.”So we are very happy to be a part of the formal ceremony of signing the Agreement. We were here to give guidance to any aspect that may be needed. We encourage bilateral negotiations or agreement…or any other difficulty they may have we try to encourage that bilateral negotiation. They must sit down at the table and have talks. Rather than being confrontational, we prefer that to be at the table.”Personnel Relations Officer Vance Reid noted that the negotiations weren’t difficult, but like all negotiations it had little ‘ups and downs’ in the deliberations.“We had to convince the other side and vice versa. I think it was okay. We didn’t have much of a disagreement for a long period. We had difficulty and we had caucus, we negotiate some of the finer points and come out with a conclusion. Sometimes when you are negotiating, you tend to push a little harder. Both sides do that, but then we would stop and reflect on where we want to go and finally we get a good document.”“Basically it is two documents, but one is in the body of the other. The Collective Labour Agreement (CLA) is for four years. Then the wages agreement is for one year,NFL Jerseys China, it is annually negotiated.
