(Halifax) Employees of Cole Harbour Place have rejected the latest offer from their employer and set a strike deadline of 6:00 a.m. Monday, June 17.
The package was presented to members of CUPE Local 108 (Unit 2) at a meeting today (June 11). It was rejected by a vote of 66%.
The main issues of wages and benefits for part-time workers who currently earn $6.50 an hour continue to be the stumbling block.
CUPE represents about 45 custodians, security guards and operations staff at the HRM recreational facility.
The union has contacted the Conciliation Officer to see if both sides can return to the bargaining table before the June 17 strike deadline.
