BARGAINING BULLETIN #24 - September 28, 2007
BARGAINING 2007 Update on Bargaining Re: Mediator's Recommendations
We have just been advised by Mediator Brian Foley that his recommendations for settlement may be delayed until possibly as late as October 8, 2007.
He has committed to do everything possible to get them to the parties earlier if possible. Members are advised to monitor the CUPE 15 website (www.cupe15.org) for further information as it becomes available. It is important to note that CUPE 15 has made our submission to Mr. Foley on September 24th, and CUPE 1004 made theirs on September 26, 2007. We understand that the City of Vancouver will be meeting with Mr. Foley over the weekend. Mr. Foley is also meeting with CUPE 391 and the Vancouver Public Library the week of October 1, 2007.
Your bargaining committee is committed to ensuring that a copy of the mediator’s recommendations for settlement will be available as soon as possible after we receive them. We will also ensure that you will have an opportunity to ask questions and to review the recommendations with your bargaining committee prior to voting.
Stay strong on the lines!
On behalf of your Bargaining Committee:
Keith Graham (Chief Negotiator)
Peter Stary (Chair)
