An update just came in… 9:00pm
Our CUPE Negotiating Committee Provincially is still at the table with the Ministry and CTA (Council for Trustee Association) The School Boards!
This is a good sign. Maintain Phase 2 and keep the pressure on.
The Ministry gave to November 1st to get a Provincial Collective Agreement so lets hope we get one so we can start concentrating on Local Bargaining! We need both to make a Collective Agreement.
You will know by Sunday evening if things have escalated and we have no agreement; if not sooner. Staying at the table is a good thing!
As the information comes in I will update you before 10pm each day.
