Mediation Update

The CUPE 391 Bargaining Committee has been in mediation at the Labour Relations Board for two days (July 3 & 11).  So far, the Union tabled an amended list of proposals on several issues.

Late this morning, the Employer responded back to the Union. So far, none of CUPE L391 priority issues, like Pay Equity, Job Security, Rights for Part-Time and Auxiliary Employees, or benefits have been appropriately addressed.

Both parties have agreed to meet again on Friday, July 20.  We remain hopeful that the Employer will contine to remove their concessions and address our member’s key proposals. We will keep you posted on any significant developments at the bargaining table.

A full bargaining report will be made at the General Meeting on Tuesday, July 17 at 6 p.m. in the Peter Kaye Room. Also, please be sure to check the CUPE 391 website for up-to-date bargaining information.

Thank you for your support.

On behalf of the Bargaining Committee,
Ed Dickson
