MONCTON The New Brunswick Council of Hospital Unions (NBCHU), CUPE Local 1252, is very pleased that Premier Bernard Lord is finally responding to our October 9th letter requesting to go back to the negotiating table.
Our concerns for the patients and theirs families are felt throughout our membership and we have done everything possible to avoid the strike and minimized the strike activities, said David Rouse President of CUPE Local 1252.
We still feel very strongly that the rejection of the Independent Conciliation Board report by the Premier was not in the best interest of the patients and their families in the Moncton region.
We will return to the negotiating table Friday, October 15Th at 9 a.m. with our full negotiating team in sincere anticipation that the Premier and his Government have finally realized that the time for a negotiated settlement is now.
