Bargaining Update

The Negotiating Team met with the Employer and Conciliator on the first day of Conciliation on Tuesday for nearly 15 hours, ending at almost midnight. Day 2 of Conciliation continued Wednesday and following another full day and night of bargaining until almost 4 AM, we failed to reach a deal. The Employer has failed to move on major concessions against pensions and bargaining rights. CUPE 2424 and the Conciliator have proposed another date for Conciliation with our commitment not to file a No Board, the next step toward job action. We await the Employer’s response.
