Town seeks conciliator in union talks

Contract negotiations between the Town of Fort Erie and its unionized employees have broken off.

Representatives of management and the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local #714 met for two days in December and briefly this morning. The two sides are at odds over contract language covering job postings and layoffs. Wages and benefits were not discussed. The Town will be seeking the appointment of a provincial conciliation officer.

The collective agreement between the Town and CUPE Local #714 expired December 31, 2011.

The union represents approximately 80 full-time and casual employees in both office and operations jobs.
