Striking workers welcome the Canadian Hearing Society’s return to bargaining
“We are pleased our employer has agreed to a date for face-to-face talks,” said Stacey Connor, president of Local 2073 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). “This is the first step toward resolution, and toward getting back to providing the vital services the Deaf and Hard of Hearing community relies on.”
“We know it’s going to take joint effort to find a resolution to this strike,” said Barbara Wilker-Frey, CUPE National Representative. “We are encouraged the CHS has accepted our invitation to get back to the table to undertake that work with us.”
The 227 workers are represented by CUPE Local 2073. They are counsellors, literacy instructors, audiologists, speech language pathologists, interpreters/interpreter trainers, clerical support, program coordinators, program assistants, and information technology specialists.
