Update #2 on collective bargaining with CUPE Local 500
Released: 9:00 a.m.
Winnipeg, MB – Last night, the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 500 (CUPE) issued a statement advising that a tentative agreement had been reached between the union and the City of Winnipeg, and that the union was pausing potential strike action.
While the City is encouraged to learn that the union was pausing potential strike action, it’s important to note that negotiations are ongoing, and that both parties have not reached a tentative agreement at this time.
“The City is seeking clarity from CUPE regarding the statement it issued,” said Michael Jack, the City’s Chief Administrative Officer. “We acknowledge that this latest development is a confusing one for our employees and for Winnipeggers who rely on our programs and services. The City remains hopeful that it can reach a settlement with the union without a labour disruption.”
