Striking Cornwall workers represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) are to vote tonight (June 4) on the latest offer from the city.

“Given that the City has refused to return to the table to bargain until a vote happens, we can’t in good conscience allow members to wait for more than two weeks to vote on the employer’s last offer,” said Alison Denis, CUPE National Representative. “Nor do we want Cornwall residents to be deprived of vital services for longer than is necessary. We think it’s responsible to accelerate this timeline, and so we will hold the vote ourselves.”

The work stoppage is affecting ambulance service in Stormont-Dundas-Glengarry.
