CUPE: Majority in Windsor Support Arbitration!

WINDSOR, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 3, 2009) - Public opinion polling conducted this week confirms what many suspected, a majority of city residents agree that the city strike should be resolved by sending outstanding issues to binding arbitration and letting everyone go back to work.

"This poll proves it is not just CUPE that wants arbitration," said CUPE Local 82 President Jim Woods. "By more than two-to-one, most people, on both sides of the issue, support arbitration."

Polling completed last night showed 65.6% of respondents agree with arbitration as the way to end the strike now and get people back to work, 29% disagree and 5.4% of respondents said they didn't know.

The poll was based on interviews with 258 Windsor residents and was conducted by ViewPoints Research Ltd. on behalf of the Canadian Union of Public Employees.
