CSS Update: Mediator calls unions, employers back to bargaining table

Special meetings for community social service workers postponed

Mediated talks are set to resume in the aftermath of an unprecedented employer vote to lock out community social services workers. Those talks will begin again on January 26.

In the meantime, special meetings for community social services workers, organized by the unions’ bargaining association, have been postponed until further notice.

Unions say they are prepared to bargain around the clock to reach a fair contract settlement and are urging employers to do the same.
