MOS Signed Today!

COPE Local 491 Bargaining Committee is happy to present the attached Memorandum of Settlement that was signed with the Employer today.  There were many big issues on the table that required lots of discussion and back and forth.  This afternoon the parties were able to come together and sign off on a complete Memorandum of Settlement.  

The bargaining committee will be holding a series of Townhall sessions to go over the MOS with members and answer any questions that you may have.  Each session will be the same, so please connect in with any of the sessions that work with your schedule.  Please note: all times listed below are in Eastern Daylight Time. 

Please send an email to: communications.cope491@gmail.com with any questions you may have ahead of time so the committee can be prepared to address the questions during the sessions.  

In Solidarity,
