CUPE LOCAL 2049 RESPONDS TO MINISTRY OF LABOUR REQUEST

CUPE Local 2049 has agreed to entertain a request from the Ministry of Labour to consider binding arbitration as a way to settle the current labour dispute with the Children’s Aid Society. A release from CUPE says 2049 President Debbie Hill was contacted by a ministry representative on Wednesday.

Interim President of the Children’s Aid Society Board John Stopper mentioned in an interview with the Moose earlier this week that binding arbitration was one option the board was looking at moving forward.

So the process has fair chance at success, both parties have agreed to make no more public statements about the current negotiations and CUPE will no longer be issuing any communications about the lockout or progress toward a resolution until further notice.
