MIDLAND — The Town of Midland has reached a tenative agreement with its outside workers.
Although he could not give any further information, Alex Sawicki of the Ontario Public Service Employees Union (OPSEU) confirmed an offer was in place.
“We can’t disclose any details until the agreement is ratified by council,” he said. “But we feel that this offer is good enough to bring to our membership.”
According to Scott Cooper, marketing and communications coordinator with the town of Midland, the two sides met with a mediator on Thursday to help hammer out an agreement. Council will be briefed about the details at a special meeting on Monday.
OPSEU Local 328 represents the town’s parks and recreation, operations and water/wastewater staff. Last month, the union filed a “no board” report with the Ministry of Labour, which would have put them in a legal strike position.
At the time, Sawicki said the offer by the town was not “on par” with what was being offered by other municipalities.
