Important Bargaining Update – Note From President

As you are aware, C.U.P.E. Local 4000 and the Ottawa Hospital met on November 14, 2018 for Conciliation.

Despite the effort of the conciliation officer, The Ottawa Hospital refused, once again, to respond to the Unions proposals, while maintaining their demand for numerous concessions.

While the Union remains committed to freely negotiating a collective agreement, we had no choice but to request a “No Board Report”, which will start the process towards arbitration.

In the interim, please stay connected with your union representatives for any further updates or possible actions the Union will be promoting, with the goal of having the Employer return to the bargaining table with the same commitment as your union.

Lou Burri,
