OPS Bargaining Telephone Town Halls February 18 and 19

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

To All OPS Members:

Your bargaining teams continue to try to reach a fair and reasonable settlement for Ontario Public Service members. However, the employer has refused to change its position and is still demanding sweeping concessions and wage freezes in the contract. 

At the Central/Unified table, the employer has served notice to begin negotiating Essential and Emergency Services Agreements, which is another step closer to the government triggering a legal strike or lockout. Please join us for one of these three tele-town halls to talk about OPS bargaining and next steps.
