Workers at Saskatoon water and wastewater treatment plants vote to reject second offer
CUPE 47, which represents 130 workers at Saskatoon’s meter shop, water, and wastewater treatment plants as well as environmental protection officers, conducted a ratification vote during the week of November 4, 2019. During this vote, the majority of members rejected the city’s offer.
The local has been without a contract since January 1, 2017, and is the only city bargaining unit still negotiating for this time period.
“Our members have sent a clear message: We need the City of Saskatoon to come back to the table with a better offer,” said Rhonda Heisler, CUPE national staff representative. “We will be reaching out to the city in the coming days to try to find a solution.”
