A tentative agreement between IBEW Local 1928 negotiating committee and the City of Summerside was ratified 100% by the membership of the bargaining unit in a vote taken on September 18, 2015. The eight-year deal will see annual general increases of 2% a year. 

Tonight's Unit 5 regular meeting (the Business Manager or designate would not be in attendance) has been cancelled due to out-of-province travel of the Acting Unit Chairperson. If another date for the regular Unit 5 September meeting is substituted, the information will be posted on the Local 1928 website when available. Otherwise the next regularly scheduled meeting of Unit 5 is Thursday October 29th (with the Business Manager in attendance). The scheduled meeting of Unit 8 in Mill Village tonight will proceed as usual.
