Burnaby-CUPE contract bargaining underway

Bargaining has started after Burnaby City Hall management met last Thursday with representatives of CUPE Local 23.

CUPE Local 23 president Rick Kotar said the two sides exchanged initial contract proposals and scheduled several meetings for November.

"Everybody's cleared their calendars and it is a priority so we're going to meet as much as we need to."

The last contract for Burnaby's unionized city workers expired Dec. 31, 2011. This will be the first first time in decades that Burnaby will negotiate directly with CUPE instead of going through Metro Vancouver's Labour Relations Bureau.
