OAKVILLE, ON –/COMMUNITYWIRE/– The outside workers for the Town of Oakville are inviting residents to join them in Oakville Towne Square late Friday afternoon for an ‘all treats, no tricks’ information rally about their ongoing collective bargaining.
The members of CUPE Local 136 have been without a contract since February 15. To date, the Town of Oakville has refused to make an offer to the workers’ bargaining committee which even keeps up with the current rate of inflation, let alone one which addresses the significant loss in purchasing power the employees have suffered in recent years. Local 136 continues to resist the town negotiators’ demand for various concessions while also insisting on restrictions on 12-hour shifts in winter operations which has very seriously compromised employees’ work-life balance.
