Statement by the Honorable MaryAnn Mihychuk, Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour

GATINEAU, QC, Aug. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - I am very happy with progress at the negotiating table. At the request of the mediator, both parties have agreed to continue negotiations until midnight tonight. This means that Canadian families and businesses will not be impacted by any work stoppages today. It is an encouraging sign of ongoing progress and a renewed determination to negotiate a new collective agreement. I remain focused on supporting the ongoing negotiations, and will continue to closely monitor the situation.
