CUPE local prez expects strong strike mandate from city workers

The president of CUPE Local 4705, which represents 1,500 City of Greater Sudbury staff in various departments, says he anticipates a strong vote in favour of a strike mandate today.

“Based on feedback that I am getting from membership, we anticipate it will be a strong mandate in favour of whatever measures are necessary to get a fair contract,” said Darryl Taylor.

Taylor could not go into details regarding the union’s demands from management, he said, but added there remain a “number of issues that still have to be addressed.”

He added his members want a deal this is fair and reasonable, and that also respects the city’s taxpayers.
