Put Kids First: Joint Labour/Employers Update #3


Employers, Unions and Government representatives met February 18th to debrief the outcomes of the employer meetings held February 14th and 15th.   As previously communicated the employers have indicated on a "without prejudice" basis that they are prepared to recommend to their boards that they participate in the Provincial Discussion Table.
The representatives have agreed to meet on a previously set date of March 3rd so the Ministry of Children and Youth Services can make a presentation on the government’s decision making process. The Child Welfare Local Directors will further discuss the issue on March 8th  and report back on potential next steps by the end of the week.
In the meantime, tentative meeting dates for a CAS Provincial Discussion Table to meet, should one be established, were set through April and May in order to secure common time blocks.
We’ll keep you posted!
