CBU administration, support workers file for conciliation


Cape Breton University’s administrative and support workers–represented by CUPE Local 3131–have filed for conciliation after bargaining talks between the union and the university failed to yield productive results. CUPE Local 3131 represents a variety of administrative workers at CBU, including those in the finance department, admissions, and in student affairs. Negotiations between the union and the university have been ongoing for some months now, with key issues up for discussion including a pay raise for the support workers. A conciliator has been appointed, though a date for the meeting has not yet been set.
