Strike Settled

December 2, 2011 permalink

An agreement has been reached in the strike against Kawartha-Haliburton CAS in Peterborough, subject only to a membership vote.

A cynical but perceptive reader warns that this CAS will go on a child-snatching spree to make up for apprehensions, and consequent funding, lost during the strike.



CAS reach tentative deal

Local CAS workers are expected to vote this afternoon

(PETERBOROUGH) A tentative deal has been reached between Kawartha-Haliburton Children’s Aid Society and its workers.

OPSEU Local 334 president Jennifer Smith says the bargaining team is recommending their members accept the deal. A vote will likely be taken Friday afternoon.

About 120 workers have been on strike since Oct. 17, since which management have been carrying out the work mandated by the Province.

Several weeks ago management made an offer to employees that the bargaining unit did not recommend, which was rejected with an 85 per cent vote.

Since then, Hugh Nicholson was replaced with an interim executive director, Suzanne Geoffrion, until a permanent replacement is found in the new year.
