11:00 AM TOPIC: Not enough paramedics in Waterloo Region says the union GUEST: Chris Sutton, National CUPE rep STATEMENT FROM THE REGION: " The parties are scheduled to meet in negotiations on Thursday, July 24.  The Region remains optimistic that we can address a number of the priorities raised by the Union on behalf of its members, and that we can reach a negotiated settlement.  Operational and staffing issues are being addressed in the recently Council-approved Master Plan for Paramedic Services, while other matters are being addressed directly at the negotiating table.  Neither party has requested a "no board" report to date, which would set a deadline for the parties to be in a legal strike (or lockout) position.  The Region will continue to work with our CUPE Local towards a responsible collective agreement the meets both the needs of our paramedics and the needs of our community." http://www.570news.com/2017/07/24/local-paramedics-warning-strike-action-no-deal-made-region/ http://www.marketwired.com/press-release/lack-of-paramedics-in-waterloo-region-puts-public-at-risk-says-union-2227247.html
