Talks set to begin for first Contract
A new union will sit down with negotiators for the City in the next couple of weeks to begin talks for a first contract.
The International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers will represent 63 municipal employees, including custodians, service workers and skilled tradespeople, (carpenters, electricians etc.) who work at City Hall, the Central Library and the Living Arts Centre.
Walter Brown of the union's Toronto office said that when it sits down with City negotiators in April, "'we won't be looking for anything extravagant.
We want fairness, a wage increase, and a little better deal for part-timers." Brown said the City has been co-operative and he hopes for a speedy settlement.
Most City union and non-union employees have received wage-hikes of two percent this year.
