OMERS Bill 206 - News Update

OMERS Bill 206 - News Update

CUPE Ontario President Sid Ryan says he is open to talking about possible options for negotiating a solution to the problems with Bill 206 and delaying job action by CUPE members while talks are ongoing.

The proposal was put to both CUPE and Premier Dalton McGuinty by Conservative party leader John Tory.

CUPE is investigating the government's willingness to withhold third reading of Bill 206 while talks involving all OMERS stakeholders proceed.

In a conference call last night with local leaders and staff, Ryan praised CUPE members for their success in putting pressure on the government to listen to CUPE's concerns about Bill 206. Today, CUPE members all over Ontario held rallies and information pickets at MPP constituency offices.

A leadership meeting for all locals with members in OMERS has been called for 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, February 21 at the Toronto Congress Centre, 650 Dixon Road, Leonard Cohen Room.

As talks regarding possible negotiations proceed, updates will be posted at
