CUPE Local 2648 reaches tentative agreement with Queens Manor

LIVERPOOL, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwired - Jan. 27, 2014) - Employees of Queens Manor Home for Special Care have reached a tentative agreement with the facility in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.

CUPE Local 2684 President Leslie Handspiker says, "We are very pleased to say that we have reached a tentative settlement in our contract dispute.

"We will be scheduling a ratification vote for our members and will not be able to release any details of the deal until that time."

Local 2648 members voted 98% in favour of job action in a strike vote held in August, 2013 to fight a demand for a concession that would have seen their sick leave almost cut in half.
