Canadian Hearing Society Workers Continue to Strike

A bargaining date has yet to be set for negotiations to continue for workers at the Canadian Hearing Society.

227 employees have been on the picket lines for two weeks and the two sides haven't met since the strike began.

Last Thursday, the Union representing the striking workers, CUPE, sent a letter to their employer with seven bargaining dates but have yet to receive a response.

"Everyone knows this strike will end through a negotiated settlement," says CUPE Local 2073 President Stacey Connor.

"It will not get resolved by the parties sniping at each other through the press. It will absolutely not get resolved if the employer is pouring energy into hiring sub-standard replacement workers. It will be resolved through the hard work of talking to each other and bargaining."
