Union makes settlement offer to Castlegar

The CUPE local in Castlegar has confirmed they have presented the city with a settlement offer and an invitation to resume negotiations.

President Leford Lafayette says it is the formal response to the city’s final offer.

But both parties are remaining tight-lipped for the moment.

Mayor Lawrence Chernoff says city staff are reviewing the offer. The union had been calling on the city to return to mediated talks.
