Halifax - Striking members of CUPE Local 1028 (former Halifax County Regional Rehabilitation Centre) now employees of QUEST, will be looking for Premier John Hamm at One Government Place the morning of Thursday, August 8, 2002. Premier Hamm will be in a Cabinet Meeting at that location and time.

“The only person who can assist in bringing a resolution to this strike is Premier Hamm,” states Linda Thurston-Neeley, National Representative with the Canadian Union of Public Employees. “We have requested the Employer to return to the table to negotiate all of the outstanding issues, we have requested the agreement to the appointment of an arbitrator and we have requested the appointment of a mediator. None of our requests have been agreeable by the Province of Nova Scotia who claims that they are not involved,” states Thurston-Neeley.

The Local Union hopes that Premier Hamm will meet with the Local directly or provide some assistance with this matter.
