Please post a message of support on CUPE 1490’s Facebook page! 16 municipal employees in Black River-Matheson are facing a very tough bargaining situation. In the last round of negotiations, their Employer locked these workers out for 7 weeks. Now, this same Employer is demanding multiple concessions to benefits and job security. The Employer has applied for and been granted a Ministry-supervised vote on the Employer’s final offer for Friday, October 14, 2016. Show your support. Please contact the Local and let them know you are behind them when they take a stand to fight off concessions!
