Bargaining Updates

Sunday, February, 21, 2016-

 

The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 79, which represents approximately 21,000 inside workers, has announced they will begin a work-to-rule campaign beginning at 12:01AM Monday.

 

What this means is that these city workers will complete their job obligations but refuse to do any extra duties, as are often requested.


If you rely on services provided by CUPE 79 workers, such as City of Toronto child care, they should not be affected.


Services would be affected if the union eventually decides to strike or the City decides to lock them out.


My understanding is that, thankfully, bargaining continues. I will be certain to keep you updated on the progress of these negotiations.

 

This is really all the information I have at this point, but I wanted to ensure you were aware of the basic details as you and your family begin your week.

 

My hope remains that both parties arrive at a fair and reasonable agreement and that there is no disruption to the services our community's residents rely on every day.
