Negotiators for Canadian Nuclear Laboratories and the union representing more than 700 scientists and engineers at Chalk River will return to the bargaining table next week to continue talks towards a new contract.

CNL and the Chalk River Professional Employees Group (CRPEG) have been negotiating a new agreement since December.

In its latest update posted online late last month, CRPEG said the two sides will meet again July 20-22.

The meeting dates come after the two sides agreed in May to turn to outside help with the talks.

While negotiations have not yet reached an “impasse, very little progress has been made on your priorities,” CRPEG told its members.

Nevertheless, CRPEG said its negotiating team “is resolute in achieving a tentative agreement at the bargaining table.”
