BLACK RIVER-MATHESON, Ontario — The Township of Black River-Matheson and Local 1490 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) finalized a settlement of all outstanding issues between the parties, following a labour dispute that has lasted more than six months. The chair of the Ontario Labour Relations Board assisted the parties in reaching the settlement during a mediation.

Both parties have agreed there will be no reprisals against any bargaining unit employee for alleged conduct during the labour dispute. The mutually agreed-upon goal is to concentrate on providing good services to the community in a positive work setting. The township and the workers together are committed to achieving this goal.
