Representatives from the City of Vancouver spent less than two hours and 22 minutes bargaining with CUPE 15 this weekend.
The rest of the time, management caucused while the union waited.
“We knew something was wrong when we arrived at the table and the City of Vancouver did not even have their two top decision makers in the room or in the building,” says CUPE 15 president, Paul Faoro.
“There is one thing I give the city credit for,” says Faoro. “Consistency”. The City of Vancouver has consistently failed to bargain and continues to frustrate the process to this day.”
