Hello Sisters & Brothers,

I hope everyone had a wonderful summer and will enjoy the upcoming fall season as well.

We have signed the new collective bargaining agreement (CBA). Highlights include 0%, 0%, and 1.5%, and changes to the sunset clause (discipline clause). Now, a written warning will only be on your file for 12 months. Thank you to the Bargaining Committee for their hard work. CBA copies are available at the Union Hall and on the CUPE Local 37 website.

Counsel gave direction to all City administration to cut their budgets. The results of this were to cut 60 million dollars out of this year’s budget and another 45 million out of next year’s budget. Therefore, at some point, these service cuts will affect CUPE 37 members.

Reminder to pay attention to playground zones and anywhere children may be.  Also, don’t forgot to check your operator’s permit, and make sure it is not expired.

I hope to see everyone at the upcoming General Membership Meetings.

Hello Sisters & Brothers,

Your President,

Cyril Wilson
