Prince Albert: Workers at Wapiti Regional Library will be parading outside the library
tomorrow, June 3, with ‘oversized’ books that convey their feelings about contract
Bargaining is set to resume next Monday after a delay of more than nine months.
The Wapiti Regional Library workers, members of CUPE 1788, have been without a
new contract for more than 29 months.
The hand-made books featured in the parade include nearly a dozen titles including:
Desperate Measures, Long Time No See and Where Do We Go From Here? The book parade will
be held from 12 noon to 1 p.m.
The CUPE library workers are pleased three days of contract negotiations are scheduled
for next week, adding they’re frustrated by the length of time it has taken to conclude
a new agreement.
“We’re hoping we have meaningful discussions at the bargaining table next week and can
conclude a fair agreement,” says union spokesperson Maureen Taylor.
The book parade will be held outside the J.M. Cuelenare and Wapiti Regional Library,
145 – 12 Street East, in Prince Albert.
