Wherever we do business, we respect the right of eligible employee groups to choose representation by a bargaining agent. Where employee groups have made that election, we bargain in good faith to reach and renew collective agreements that balance the needs of the business and represented employees with settlements reflecting current economic and business realities.
Approximately 4,800 of our employees are covered by collective agreements and about 90% of our represented employees are members of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers (CEP) Union, which represents workers in oil sands, in situ, refining, distribution, natural gas and offshore operations. The majority of our represented employees were covered by collective agreements linked to a national template agreement with the CEP. In June 2013, a new three-year agreement was negotiated and ratified.
This is an important milestone for us as it leads to our next step which is to conclude local negotiations at our CEP-represented operations.
Collective agreements negotiated with other unions at the London terminal, Commerce City refinery and Sarnia refinery will expire in 2015.
