MONTREAL, Sept. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fabrique de la paroisse Notre-Dame
de Montréal has taken note of the union's proposal to partially suspend its
strike. It is therefore inclined to end its lockout to allow for the
resumption of burials as soon as possible and thus relieve the suffering of
families affected. The Fabrique considers the union's proposal interesting
even though it contains certain conditions, and has already contacted the
union in this regard.
In addition, the process of conciliation is progressing well and will
continue throughout the coming days. The Fabrique is hopeful of quickly
reaching a settlement to this labour dispute.
