CRD workers unable to resolve contract negotiations through mediation

CUPE Local 1978 members who work for the Capital Regional District (CRD) are still without a new collective agreement after one day of unsuccessful mediation.

“Our next step is to negotiate essential service levels, a process that happens through the BC Labour Relations Board,” said CUPE 1978 President Rick Illi.

A strike or lockout cannot occur prior to essential service levels being negotiated and the CRD or the union filing 72-hour lockout or strike notice.

Further bargaining updates will be given as available.
