(CORNWALL, ON) – Votes conducted today on the City of Cornwall’s last offers to four striking Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) locals have yielded an averaged 92.5% rejection of what the employer has proposed.
The City asked us to take their last offer directly to our members, and we have done that, using the documents submitted by the employer to the Ministry of Labour last week. Our members have voted, and we have communicated the results to the City of Cornwall. We expect they will respect the democratic outcome of these votes.
CUPE has invited the City right back to the bargaining table for tomorrow, Tuesday June 5th. CUPE is prepared to do all we can at the bargaining table to resolve this quickly, and return vital services to normal for Cornwall residents. Will the City commit to do the same?
