About 20 Saskatoon library workers and their supporters were at the city council meeting Tuesday night. They were there to bring attention to stalled contract talks.
The city's 250 library employees, represented by CUPE, have been without a contract for more than two years. According to their union, they are the lowest-paid civic employees in the city with many of them making minimum wage.
Dolores Douglas with CUPE, says talks need to continue. “Our negotiating process is probably at a standstill right now. We did receive the latest offer from the employer on the second of November, and no further bargaining dates at this time.”
