SAULT STE. MARIE – Local 1880 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), representing 400 Community Living Algoma workers, has reached a tentative agreement in mediated talks today. Details of the settlement will not be available until after it has been voted on by the membership.

The workers will vote on their employer’s offer tomorrow, Wednesday, April 23rd, from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., in Sault Ste. Marie, at the Days Inn, Empire Room, and from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon in Blind River, at the North Shore Wayside Inn.

The bargaining committee is recommending a yes vote. If the deal is accepted, it will avert a strike by support workers, cooks, cleaners, social workers, supportive living, supportive housing, life skills and counsellors.
