Equity-NBCA Ratification Commences
RWP Having reached a deal on terms for a one-year rollover of the National Ballet of Canada Agreement (NBCA), ratification will begin May 30, 2022 for all Equity members eligible to vote on the proposed changes.

Members in good standing who worked under the terms of the previous NBCA should look for a ratification ballot in their email inbox as of the 30th. Information on this ratification vote, including a detailed explanation of the proposed material changes, is now available at www.caea.com (members only). The deadline to vote is June 15, 2022 at noon ET.

Given that the Ballet has recently appointed a new Artistic Director, it was felt that a one-year rollover of the agreement with a modest financial increase would provide an opportunity for artists to gain experience working with their new Artistic Director before returning to the table.

Pending a successful ratification, the NBCA will take effect July 1, 2022.

Negotiations began on November 2, 2021, continuing to April 26, 2022, and agreement between the parties to specific negotiated language was confirmed on May 11, 2022.

Please email Arden R. Ryshpan or Ruth Leggett for any additional information regarding the negotiation and ratification of this agreement.

If you believe you are eligible to vote in the ratification of the NBCA, but do not receive your electronic ballot on May 30, please contact communications@caea.com.
