CUPE’s Laura Walton says she hopes bargaining can resume and that the union’s prepared to do ”the hard work” to avoid a walkout.
”Even as we take this step, we are prepared to get a deal that will avoid strike action,” adds Walton.
”We are inviting the Council of Trustees Association and the (Education Ministry) back to the table for some hard collaborative work.”
Meanwhile, Education Minister Stephen Lecce says provincial negotiators are ready to meet as early as today, and remains ”cautiously optimistic” a deal can be reached.
