Provincial Labour Board agrees Moncton bargained in good faith


January 30, 2013
 
MONCTON –New Brunswick’s Labour and Employment Board has dismissed the bargaining in bad faith complaint that the Amalgamated Transit Union (ATU) Local 1290 filed against the City of Moncton on June 30, 2011, prior to the Codiac Transpo labour dispute. The New Brunswick Labour and Employment Board concurred with the City of Moncton that Moncton’s City Council never ratified any proposals exchanged between the City and ATU 1290 as of December 2010 and thus bargained in good faith. 
 
“The City is pleased to have this complaint set aside and to move forward in a positive and constructive manner,” said Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc.  “I know that the good people who work at Codiac Transpo are working to deliver a more efficient and effective public transit service to the people of Greater Moncton.”
