Minister Whissel's intervention in labour conflict at Notre-Dame-des-Neiges Cemetery - La Fabrique de la paroisse Notre-Dame de Montréal favours a negotiated settlement of the conflict

    MONTREAL, Aug. 28 /CNW Telbec/ - La Fabrique de la paroisse Notre-Dame de
Montréal believes that the two parties, currently taking part in conciliation
sessions, have a common interest in quickly coming to a negotiated settlement
of the dispute that has perturbed activities at Notre-Dame-des-Neiges
    "Changing the rules of the game at a time when both parties are making
the necessary efforts to come to an agreement would not facilitate
negotiations and the ability to come to a rapid resolution of the conflict,"
said Me Guy Dufort, management negotiator and spokesperson for the Fabrique.
Me Dufort was reacting to comments made by David Whissel, Minister of Labour.
    La Fabrique de la paroisse Notre-Dame-de-Montréal understands the
frustration and pain of the families who cannot bury their loved ones and is
making every effort to come to a negotiated agreement as quickly as possible
within a positive climate. It emphasizes that negotiations are progressing and
that the atmosphere is positive.
