NEWMARKET A tentative agreement reached this morning on behalf of 92 front line health care workers at the York Region CCAC, will be presented to the members of Local 905 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), in a ratification vote Friday, August 20th, at 11:00 am, at the Local 905 union hall, 20 Charles St., in Newmarket.
We will be recommending this deal to the membership, says CUPE National Representative Jim Keenan. We managed to get the concessions off the table and thats an important victory for the workers.
Details of the agreement will not be released until members have had a chance to vote on it Friday. If accepted, the deal will end the strike which began August 6th.
York Region CCAC workers include team assistants, service coordinators, case managers, payroll and accounting staff, information technology specialists, information and referral specialists, and receptionists. They work in three CCAC offices in the region and in satellite offices at the Markham Stouffville Hospital, the Southlake Regional Health Centre, and the York Central Hospital.
We thank the residents and patients who supported us throughout this ordeal, says CUPE 905 CCAC Unit Chair Dawn Trott. Your support made all the difference in the world.
