AUPE sup­port staff and Liv­ing Wa­ters Catholic Re­gional Di­vi­sion no. 42 set­tle dis­pute

The McLeod River Post - - Education Matters -

We are pleased to an­nounce that Liv­ing Wa­ters and AUPE have both voted to rat­ify the rec­om­men­da­tions from the me­di­a­tor and have reached an agree­ment that will bring an end to AUPE’s strike ac­tion.

The agree­ment that was reached af­ter the ne­go­ti­a­tion ses­sion held on Oc­to­ber 15, 2018 ad­dresses the needs and is­sues raised by both par­ties through­out the ne­go­ti­a­tion process, and we hope will be an im­por­tant first step in al­low­ing our com­mu­nity to move for­ward.

We rec­og­nize the last weeks have not been easy for any­one in the Liv­ing Wa­ters com­mu­nity, in­clud­ing those em­ploy­ees who were on strike. We now look for­ward to the process of heal­ing and rec­on­cil­i­a­tion that must take place In the wake of such events, and to wel­com­ing our val­ued em­ploy­ees back to their places of work. The Board and Se­nior Ad­min­is­tra­tion of Liv­ing Wa­ters want to sin­cerely thank our com­mu­nity for their sup­port, pa­tience, un­der­stand­ing, and prayers as we nav­i­gated this process.
