Today, September 19th, your Local Bargaining Team met face-to-face with the UCDSB bargaining committee for a day of bargaining. We were fortunate to sign off and agree to two articles, Article 1: Preamble and Article 2: Management Rights. Discussion and the passing of proposals by both sides on Articles 3,4,5,11 and 14 ensued, but remain apart on these articles. Further discussion on these articles will continue during future bargaining days. The Employer put forward one future bargaining date, Thurs., October 27. The Union accepted and offered 9 other future bargaining dates. The Employer declined but did set up one other date, Monday, November 7th, which the Union accepted.

CUPE 5678 Bargaining Team.



Today, September 12, 2022 your local CUPE 5678 bargaining team, met with the Upper Canada District bargaining team.

Today we were successful in agreeing to ground rules, which includes language that we will be doing transparent bargaining.  This means we will be much freer to discuss with the membership and general public on what is happening at the local bargaining table. If at any time you have any questions about the bargaining process please feel free to reach out to a member of the bargaining team.

For more information on the strike vote, update on bargaining and a strike hardship fund, please attend our special membership meeting this Saturday September 17, 2022 online at 10 am.  The link has been sent to your CUPE 5678 email.

We must all stand together at this time.

In Solidarity from your bargaining committee,
