Contract talks between the City and Union have broken down

The BC Government and Service Employees Union, which represents about 120 City of Fort St. John employees, now says contract talks for the group have broken down.

However, a union spokesperson also confirms the city has now applied for mediation….and the BCGEU views that as a positive step, toward possible settlement of the dispute.

The workers have been without a contract since the end of December and the union now confirms they’ve voted 92 percent in favor, of strike action.

That gives the union the option of legally launching job action, with 72 hours notice but, there’s no indication it has any immediate plans of that nature.

Neither side in the dispute has commented on the key issues or how many of them remainded unresolved when the talks broke off.
