The CUPE Local 2348 (Midwives) bargaining committee met with the employer representative and a provincial conciliation officer on March 2nd to discuss outstanding issues.
These issues are predominantly related to fair compensation.
There was some positive movement at the bargaining table, and CUPE will be meeting again with the conciliation officer and employer on Wednesday, March 9 to continue negotiations.
“We are hopeful that we can reach a fair contract without a strike” said Sheree Capar, CUPE National Representative.
Thank you to all midwives and supporters for your ongoing solidarity and patience!
