·1-min read

ST. JOHN’S, Newfoundland and Labrador, June 28, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Municipal workers, members of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 2099, will be holding a rally in front of the Mount Pearl City Hall today at 5 p.m., at the same time the mayor and councillors will be holding a city council meeting.

"We want the concessions and two-tier proposals made by the city removed from the table and we want them to bargain a fair wage adjustment. We won’t accept a collective agreement that doesn’t provide the same rights and benefits for all workers and a reasonable wage adjustment," says Ken Turner, president of Local 2099.

CUPE 2099 is making every effort to reach a deal and to avoid a possible strike or lockout, which could happen as early as Monday, July 4.

WHERE: 3 Centennial Street in Mount Pearl, NL

WHEN: Tuesday, June 28 starting at 5 p.m.

WHO:

  • Members of CUPE 2099 and President Ken Turner

  • CUPE NL President Sherry Hillier

  • Supporters from other unions including: CUPE 3034, Conception Bay South; CUPE 569, St. John’s; CUPE 1289, St. John’s; CUPE 1615, Memorial University; and others.

CUPE 2099 represents more than 200 municipal workers who work in recreation services, administration, taxation and finance, road maintenance, water and sewage, facilities maintenance, landscape maintenance, engineering, and planning.
