Update – January 30th, 2023

After many failed attempts to contact our national representative, we have found out that Elizabeth is no longer working with CUPE.

We have requested a new CUPE rep. be assigned to us as soon as possible as we are in the midst of our negotiations and executive elections.

For the time being everything is on hold until we get a new permanent CUPE representative assigned to us.

We are still waiting for MBLL to reply to our proposals. There have been no communications thus far from management on the contract negotiations.

Update – November 02, 2022

Negotiation is Continuing…

CUPE local 5021 is still in negotiations with the employer. We have had some challenges; we have also recommended some options to the employer. We remain confident that MBLL will be amiable to at least some of the options we’ve recommended to them.

We are waiting for response from the employer on our recommended options. We have been informed that it may take some time as there are other negotiations going on with other unions in the company.

We are unable to share any details at this time, due to contract not been signed. We remain steadfast in getting our local an optimum CA.

Update – April 04, 2022

CUPE 5021 is currently in negotiations with your Employer, as we attempt to achieve a fair and freely negotiated collective agreement. This round has proven to be very challenging, but we remain optimistic about reaching an agreement at the table. 

As you may be aware, the current cost of living has skyrocketed and shows no sign of returning to normal levels any time soon. With this in mind, we feel that the membership deserves a fair wage increase to help offset the cost of living, and to recognize your important work. We will continue to fight for fair wages and not accept imposed wage mandates. 

While we cannot provide too much detail with respect to the ongoing negotiations, we will endeavour to keep you updated and we ask for your support and solidarity as we work hard to negotiate the best possible collective agreement for you.

We would ask that you provide your personal contact information, including your personal email (if you have not already done so), so we can have direct contact with members moving forward through this process.
