CUPE political action stepped down as talks progress

TORONTO — Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE)

Ontario President Sid Ryan has stepped down
province-wide political action scheduled to begin at
midnight tonight.

“We have had good, productive, constructive
discussions with the government during the course of
the last 24 hours,” Ryan said. “As I and the Premier
both said this morning, we have been working hard at a
solution that is mutually satisfactory.”

While talks are continuing, Ryan said he hopes and
expects that they will be concluded shortly.

“We are determined to continue working at this with a
view to completing our work today,” he said. “We are
working hard to resolve the last few details; however,
I am confident enough at this stage to say that we can
step down our political protest planned for tomorrow.”
