BURLINGTON, ON – The City of Burlington’s transit workers rejected a tentative agreement in ratification votes on Sunday, July 5 and CUPE 2723 is calling on management to return to the bargaining table to resume negotiations.
“Our members have spoken and indicated the contract offer before them did not go far enough to address their concerns,” said Dean Mainville, CUPE national representative for CUPE 2723. “We are calling on the city to resume discussions with us and explore ways to overcome this impasse.”
“We have reached out to management and asked them to return to bargaining in an effort to work out an agreement that will be acceptable to members, and prevent a service disruption that will affect transit users,” said Mainville. “
CUPE 2723 represents 130 transit workers, including drivers and mechanics.
