CASTLEGAR – The City of Castlegar has agreed to return to the bargaining table with CUPE Local 2262. The city and union are scheduled to meet for mediated talks on Monday, December 22.
The move follows more than five weeks of picket lines in the first civic strike in Castlegar’s history. No bargaining has taken place since talks failed to find a resolution in September. The 34 CUPE Local 2262 civic workers have been without a contract since February 2013.
