Councillor Morrison advised that she is Chair of a group comprised of the top aggregate producing municipalities of Ontario and that she addressed the Aggregate Resource Act Review Committee where the panel was very interested in recycling. She suggested that the Ministry of Transportation needs to take the lead in this area and set the example for municipalities to follow.

Councillor Morrison requested the Commissioner of Public Works to report to a future meeting of Regional Council with the history of recycling in the Region of Peel, in order to illustrate how much progress has been made.

Dan Labrecque, Commissioner of Public Works, stated that the Region of Peel would be hosting a workshop in Fall, 2012, with the three area municipalities, to discuss how to improve and expand the use of recycled aggregates. He noted that the recycled products do not hold up well under heavily travelled roads and the workshop will explore other opportunities for its utilization. He undertook to provide Members of Regional Council with information related to the workshop and to ensure they are invited to attend.

Councillor Foley suggested that the use of recycled aggregates would be appropriate for parking lots at government facilities and recreation centres.

Councillor Paterak suggested that the Region of Peel could play a role in assisting other municipalities to understand the potential applications of recycled non-asphalt in road based materials. He further noted that a local use for bottom ash would result in savings related to the costs of transporting the ash to the facility in Warwick.

Councillor Sanderson noted the need for the province to explore opportunities for using recycled materials, noting there may be use for recycled glass that would offset the cost of transporting it.

The Commissioner of Public Works undertook to include the issue of recycled glass as a topic for discussion at the workshop.

Councillor Starr requested that a chart be provided to Members of Regional Council illustrating how much recycled product the Region of Peel has been using; the types of material used; its lifespan; cost, and; the cost of replacement and repair, to help assess how cost effective the overall program is and how it can be improved.

Additional Item – Item 8a:

Received 2012-676

See also Resolutions 2012-642 and 2012-679

R. Kent Gillespie, Commissioner of Employee and Business Services, provided an update on the labour disruption by CUPE members from Human Services, noting that the same bargaining team negotiated the agreement with Public Health. He stated that an agreement was signed on May 16, 2012 between the Region of Peel and CUPE representatives, however it was not ratified by the members of the Union. The Region of Peel was not provided information related to the voting results and staff have not yet heard from the CUPE bargaining team with respect to returning to negotiations. He further advised that bargaining with the same CUPE representatives would soon begin for Public Works and TransHelp employees.

In response to a question from Councillor McCallion, David Szwarc, Chief Administrative Officer stated that the Region of Peel does not negotiate in the press; and that communicating directly with the striking members could be perceived as bad-faith bargaining.

Councillor Palleschi suggested that large advertisements be placed in local newspapers, as fact sheets, to let residents and employees of the Region of Peel know what was presented, negotiated and agreed to by Union representatives.

Councillor Dale suggested that Members of Regional Council be provided with a chart comparing the benefits associated with each bargaining unit.

Patrick O’Connor, Regional Solicitor and Director, Legal and Risk Management, strongly advised Regional Council that the matter relating to employee negotiations should be dealt with In Camera.

The Chief Administrative Officer confirmed that the perception of some union members that non-union staff could receive up to a 9.5 per cent increase is factually incorrect.

In Camera Matters were dealt with.
