Notice from CUPE BC

Members,

Below is a notice from CUPE BC that shows which locals have now ratified their Collective Agreements and which Locals have a signed MOA (memorandum of agreement) to take back to their membership for ratification.

Unfortunatley, you will not find us on the list.  The employer is entrenched and appears to be attempting to use our situation as leverage to acheive a concession. Unless there is a change in position from the employer we will not have a MOA signed by today.

Hopes are not dead as we have agreed to continue bargaining with the single issue left in Package A at the end of August once the employers chief spokesperson is back from holidays after August 18th.

We had hoped to complete today after attempting to hold another meeting this morning but the employer was not prepared to move on their position.

Dean
