The Fog of Strikes

Since talks broke down between CUPE 15 and the City the picket rumour mill is in full swing:
  • City of Vancouver will not consider the wages and benefits of the Richmond deal
  • City of Vancouver attempted to force Richmond to stall accepting the 18.5% proposal
    • Vancouver believed that the Richmond agreement would undercut Vancouver
News Media Report
  • CUPE 15 requested between 21% - 30% wage increase over 5 years
  • Jerry Dubrovolny is quoted that union requested 30% increase over 5 years
