Nipissing Parry Sound CAS Board Welcomes Opportunity to Meet with CUPE Reps

Mar 14, 2017

NORTH BAY, ON – The Board of Directors of the Children’s Aid Society of the District of Nipissing and Parry Sound this evening welcomed the opportunity to meet with representatives of CUPE Local 2049.

“On behalf of the CAS Board of Directors, I would like to express my sincere thanks to the CUPE representatives for sharing their views in a spirit of respectful and constructive dialogue,” said John Stopper, Interim President of the CAS Board. “It is my hope that open and frank discussions like this will open the door to further contract negotiations and a speedy end to the current work disruption.”

The invitation for the special meeting was extended to CUPE on March 1, 2017 and hosted by the CAS Board. Also in attendance was CAS Executive Director Gisèle Hébert, negotiating representatives and management. The special meeting of the board included a presentation by CUPE and a question and answer session between CUPE representatives and the CAS board.

“This evening’s discussions build a foundation for future talks by setting a positive tone and bringing further clarity and transparency to the key issues setting us apart,” Hébert said. “Let’s build on the momentum established tonight so that we can move faster toward resolution and get our valued staff back to work.”
