Brockville part-time bus drivers join CUPE



    BROCKVILLE, ON, June 9 /CNW Telbec/ - On Friday, part-time bus drivers
with the city of Brockville have voted to join the Canadian Union of Public
Employees (CUPE). They will belong to the same union as the full time drivers
(CUPE local 115), but will possibly be negotiating a separate collective
agreement.
    The drivers want to be treated fairly with similar wages and working
conditions as their full time colleagues. They are looking to increase their
job security and speak with one voice with other city employees against
contracting out and for accountable and high quality public services.
    Local 115 president, Jason Barlow welcomes the new members. "We are
looking forward to helping them in any way we can so they get the respect and
fairness they deserve. And we will all work together to keep the Brockville
transit system accountable to the public."
