Statement from Mayor and Parks Board Chair regarding CUPE Strike

Mayor Sam Sullivan and Park Board Chair Ian Robertson today issued the following statement regarding the CUPE Strike:

"This morning, the City of Vancouver’s negotiating teams received recommendations from mediator Brian Foley and are reviewing the implications of his report.

We want to thank Mr. Foley for his assistance to the parties over the past few weeks.

In the coming days, CUPE members will have an opportunity to review and vote on these recommendations, as will the Labour Relations Bureau of Metro Vancouver and City Council.

In this light, we and our Caucus colleagues will not be making any comments to the media regarding the strike until that process is complete. It is my hope elected officials from all parties will give the same consideration."
