Municipality continues to work toward negotiated agreement with inside workers union
August 17, 2022
SYDNEY, NS – Cape Breton Regional Municipality’s Mayor and Council support the bargaining process with the municipality’s inside workers.
“Like CBRM’s accepted offer to outside workers in December, the inside workers union is being treated equally fair,” said Mayor Amanda McDougall. “We hope all issues are resolved and the municipality’s contract offer is accepted as it is in line with the agreement with the outside workers.”
The union voted to strike on July 27 and CBRM management are exploring options for continued service delivery in the event of a strike. The public will be informed through media, social media and CBRM website about any changes to the services available and how they access them.
“We anticipate that most services accessed by the public will continue to be provided if there is a strike action, such as 911 emergency service, 311 information service, police non-emergency and public works 24 hour contacts,” added Mayor McDougall. “Administrative activities such as payment processing, building permits and inspections will also continue.”
