On Friday November 4, Rav Bains received an e-mail from CUPE Local 4914 President Sonia Yung asking to resume bargaining. Peel CAS sent the following response.
Sonia, thank-you for your email requesting a return to bargaining. I was pleased to read that you share our goal of ending this strike and getting our employees back to work as soon as possible.
I would ask that you contact Angie Jones with your request to meet. The Union requested conciliation by the Ministry of Labour and we are now involved in that process. We respect the Ministry's process and have been pleased to have the conciliator's assistance. We think it is appropriate to follow the standard labour relations practice of continuing to work with the Ministry's guidance. We look forward to hearing from Ms. Jones.
Hopefully we will be able to return to the table in short order and achieve a negotiated collective agreement.
CEO, Peel CAS
