Municipal workers at the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor, members of CUPE 1349, launched a radio ad campaign this week in an effort to reach a tentative agreement with their employer, and to avoid a disruption to services.
Radio Ad #1
The clock is counting down to a lockout or strike on June 30. We’re doing everything we can to avoid a work stoppage – but we need a partner that respects collective bargaining to reach a deal.
Please call the mayor, councillors, and Town management. Tell them to bargain a fair contract with workers and avoid a work stoppage.
Radio Ad #2
We’re focused on achieving a fair contract for our members and the Town of Grand Falls-Windsor. We wish the Mayor and Council were too.
Town staff have experience in labour negotiations, yet they’re paying to contract out their own work. They need to stop trying to strip away provisions already in our contract.
We will not bargain backward.
Grand Falls-Windsor is a great place to live and do business – and for 51 years we’ve been proud to deliver many of the quality public services that make life better for everyone.
We take care of fire dispatch, water and sewage, roads, and recreation facilities like the Joe Byrne Stadium, Windsor Stadium, and the Splash Pad.
Please tell the mayor and council to respect our right to collective bargaining – instead of demanding concessions.
