Did the City of Cornwall Fire Civic Complex Security Staff for Joining CUPE by Jamie Gilcig – Aug 29, 2014

Cornwall City skylineCORNWALL Ontario – CUPE has filed a grievance on behalf of security workers that were terminated Friday August 22, 2014.

Mary Unan, speaking from Toronto, shared that the process is underway with a hearing scheduled in October that will hopefully reinstate them.

For the 6-8 workers who lost their jobs that could be a long wait.    Sources stated to CFN that the employees were fired for joining CUPE as they had not been unionized previously.

Most city employees are unionized.   Emails to Dail Levesque, HR manager for Cornwall had not been returned by press time.

Ms Unan stated that CUPE considers the security workers who lost their jobs CUPE members.

Cornwall Labour Council President, Elaine MacDonald, who also is a city councilor responded via phone.  She referred the question to city management.
