Statement to the Media - Region of Peel Presents Final Offers of Collective Agreements to CUPE Local 966
The Region of Peel wants to get our striking employees back to work as soon as possible.
Late last week, we presented three final offers of collective agreements to the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 966, the union representing more than 900 employees in Human Services, Public Works and TransHelp.
It had been our hope that CUPEís Executive and Bargaining Committee would take the final offers to their members for a vote. Unfortunately that has not yet occurred.
As part of these negotiations, the Region and CUPEís Bargaining Committee have been working on Return to Work protocols since June 29. This morning, the Region presented the union with its final position on the Return to Work protocols.
Today, the Region is asking the union once again to take the final offers of collective agreements to the membership for a vote.
Steve Davis, Acting Director of Human Resources is available for comment.
