City Of St John Collective Agreement

Counsel. Dave Lane, chief financial officer, called it a „tough negotiation“ and thanked city staff. „We really appreciate our staff,“ he said at Monday`s Council meeting, when the council voted unanimously to ratify the agreement.

CUPE President Sherry Hillier says the most surprising thing is that the layoffs at Mile One come at the same time as downtown Saint John announced that the public would be invited to the stadium to visit Santa claus instead of the Christmas parade.
