(Halifax) – The union representing school crossing guards across HRM says it now has dates to start bargaining with the Halifax Police Services Board.

CUPE National Representative Jacquie Bramwell says, “Contract talks will take place July 3, 4, 5 for a first collective agreement for these 180 employees.  


This group has been looking optimistically to their counterparts in Cape Breton and are hopeful they will achieve parity with them. That certainly is CUPE’s goal.”


Bramwell says the union will be calling a meeting in the near future to discuss bargaining proposals with the guards, who are now members of CUPE Local 4814.

The group of about 180 part-time workers staff crosswalks at schools and street corners from one end of HRM to the other.
