City workers eye Moncton Council raises

Moncton city workers are looking at the raises city councillors gave themselves with an eye to future contract talks.

Their current contract doesn’t expire until the end of 2018…but the negotiations for the 200 workers begin next month with initial positions tabled.

Negotiator Larry Gagnon of P-SAC which represents the City Hall Employees Association, told the Times and Transcript the union certainly isn’t looking for the 35% raise councillors voted for themselves. But he says they will look to see if any part of it is applicable to the workers.
