Following the overwhelming rejection of the employer’s last offer in votes held Monday, CUPE invited the City of Cornwall to return to the bargaining table to work on finding a resolution to the strike. We are pleased that the City has agreed to do so on Wednesday.

“CUPE is committed to the hard work of truly negotiating to find a fair deal,” said Alison Denis, CUPE National Representative. “We need for the employer to be prepared to do the same. That’s the way that this strike ends – we both need to be willing to put in the work. That’s what negotiations look like. The City needs to be ready to do that work with us.”
