Bargaining Update

CUPE 2424 met with the employer for another full day of bargaining yesterday, again with the assistance of a Conciliator from the Ministry of Labour. The parties engaged in a number of frank discussions throughout the day and were able to reach agreement on some issues, but major issues surrounding pensions and job evaluation remain unresolved.

We have agreed to another bargaining date on February 12 upon the recommendation of the Conciliator. This will be our 18th day in bargaining with the employer since July.
