Dear Sisters and Brothers;
At the beginning of the summer your Local Bargaining Committee met with our CUPE National Staff Representative to provide dates of availability for the beginning of local bargaining with the employer. We were available and prepared to negotiate through the entire summer if necessary. Dates were provided to the employer, but to-date the employer has yet to respond; therefore, Local 4153 has applied for Conciliation. This keeps our local in sync with what is required from all locals across Ontario. Unfortunately, to-date no local bargaining has taken place with the employer.
Summer has been very busy and although the Union office has been technically closed, your Local Bargaining Committee and your Union Office Administrator continue to work hard to secure a collective agreement for our members.
Please continue to check our website for additional updates on local bargaining.
