Yesterday CUPE 15 had a picket captains meeting. They did some finger waving about how and when people picket and are now threatening to send "picket police" to ensure people are picketing in the manner prescribed.
Regarding negotiations CUPE and the City are in offer - counter offer mode. It appears both sides are attempting to massage contract language to ensure neither side loses what face they have left.
Sticking points "No Layoffs" & "Auxiliary Seniority Pool."
