Bargaining Update

On Friday November 1st, 2019, the bargaining committee met with a conciliator and the City of St. John’s. The city presented its final offer which the bargaining committee reviewed and responded to. The City rejected our response and were not willing to continue conciliation. The City then requested their final offer be presented to the membership no later than November 15th.

Due to the tight time line the bargaining committee requested Monday November 18th and the City agreed. Therefore, on November 18th the bargaining committee will present the City’s final offer to the membership for review, discussion, questions and then a vote. In order to accommodate as many people as possible two meetings will be held, one at 2:00 PM and the other at 5:30 PM. Both meetings will take place on the first floor of the Knights of Columbus on St. Clare Ave.

Please make every effort to attend one of these sessions and cast your vote.

MEMO

To: All CUPE NL Presidents, Executives and Committee Members
From: Wayne Lucas, President CUPE NL
Re: The Children’s Wish Foundation

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

CUPE Newfoundland and Labrador has been approached by The Children’s Wish Foundation, Newfoundland & Labrador Chapter to aid in granting a wish to a Wish Child in our province.

We are one of only two unions in our province to be asked to participate. Our Sister union, NAPE, has also been asked if they could also offer some assistance in this worthwhile cause.

In order to grant a wish to a sick child, we need to reach $10,000. To date, we have raised $5,100 which means we are halfway to our goal. If you have already donated – thank you! If you have not, we hope your local will find this a worthwhile way to help those in need and show people that we are truly a union that works for our communities. No contribution is to small!

You will need to make your cheques out to CUPE NL with Children’s Wish Foundation written on the memo line. Please mail them to:

Sherry Hillier

On November 5, 2017 the Children’s Wish foundation will host a Radiothon at O’Rielly’s Pub on George Street and will show their appreciation to its sponsors on NTV news and OZ FM Radio to acknowledge donations.

Sisters and Brothers, the communities in which we live and work have always known the membership of CUPE NL for their dedication to family and to community involvement.

Thank you so much for your continued support.

In solidarity,
Wayne Lucas
President
CUPE NL

Tell the Ball Government to keep their promise not to privatize our public health care system.

The P3 deals that the Ball Government wants to use to build Corner Brook health care facilities are a Trojan Horse that will allow the quality of our public health care to be influenced by private interests and profit margins.

Please urge the Ball Government to take the following action:

Make public the full details of the Corner Brook value-for-money report and business case – before final decisions are made and any contracts are signed.

In addition, the Province should mandate:
•Public consultation
•The involvement of a provincial auditor
•Public-Private Partnership Transparency and Accountability legislation that demands a preliminary analysis – available to the public – outlining the risks, costs and benefits of using a P3
