New Agreement

A huge Thank you to our bargaining committee that put in the long hours to come to an agreement with FMPSD. Thank you to all 94 members that attended the ratification vote.

The agreement was past with a 53% in favor of the new agreement.

 

The draft has been sent out and our committee has been checking it over. Once the agreement has been sent off for printing, we will have new ones printed and we will have an electronic copy on our site.

A doctor needs a test to determine the risk of heart failure in a patient. She needs results back in an hour, but a private, off-site lab will take between 4-6 hours.

Private labs are dangerous. That’s why sixteen pathologists have risked their necks and spoken out against the Redford Government’s plans to privatize hospital labs.

 

Please sign this letter and share it far and wide.

Message from OUR local President

After listening to fellow brothers and sisters from locals across our Nation, 2014 should be the year that locals take a stand. Solidarity means unity or agreement of feeling or action, especially among individuals with a common interest; mutual support within a group, OUR union. Together in solidarity locals of CUPE should take a stand and a united front by hitting the streets and STRIKE!

While in Quebec City, Lorna Tollman (president), Lynn Fleet (vice president), and Crystal Stoutenburg (communicator) showed support. Our brothers and sisters in Quebec have been without a collective agreement for almost 3 years. Negotiations have ceased and is being negotiated through the media. Basically the employer is going to the media to sway the opinions of the public to support unfair wages….SHAME!
