CUPE 387 Bargaining Update
June 19, 2023

Your bargaining committee met with the employers (City, Library and Police Board) for two days of negotiations on the 6th and 9th of June and made limited progress towards a new collective agreement.

At our last meeting, the employers committed to giving the union specific information related to auxiliary employees by June 27. This information is critical in helping us address one of your key bargaining priorities.

Previously, the employers have committed to sharing this information and have not fully followed through, however, we are hopeful that they will provide this information by June 27 and that we will be able to make continued progress at the bargaining table.

We meet again for one day of bargaining on June 27. We want to reiterate that we remain committed to negotiating a collective agreement that reflects the current economic climate, and the lasting impact inflation has had on the cost of living.

The best way to make sure you receive all future bargaining updates is to regularly monitor the CUPE 387 website and also ensure CUPE 387 has your contact information by emailing your personal (non-work) email address to
