New date for Employment Check – April 30, 2008

Human Resources, City of Vancouver lawyer, CUPE lawyer, CUPE National representative and Union executive met today to discuss the results of the John Steeves award on Employment Checks grievance.  We will be have ongoing discussions in an attempt to resolve this matter.  We are also looking for arbitration dates to accommodate both the Library and the Union.  Because this matter will not be settled in the near future, it has been mutually decided to extend the due date of the criminal record check until April 30, 2008.  All present staff are not required to take any action until that date.
