Brockville part-time bus drivers join CUPE

Jun 9, 2008 12:43 PM

BROCKVILLE, Ont. – On Friday, part-time bus drivers with the city of Brockville have voted to join the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). They will belong to the same union as the full time drivers (CUPE local 115), but will possibly be negotiating a separate collective agreement.

The drivers want to be treated fairly with similar wages and working conditions as their full time colleagues. They are looking to increase their job security and speak with one voice with other city employees against contracting out and for accountable and high quality public services.

Local 115 president, Jason Barlow welcomes the new members. “We are looking forward to helping them in any way we can so they get the respect and fairness they deserve. And we will all work together to keep the Brockville transit system accountable to the public.”
