Brant, Haldimand & Norfolk Counties – Labour Agreement — For Immediate Release

Child and Family Services of Grand Erie (CFSGE) has been negotiating a collective agreement with CUPE Local 7070, which represents all of the Agency’s unionized staff, since September 20, 2022.

We are pleased to advise that the tentative agreement reached between CUPE Local 7070 and Child and Family Services of Grand Erie was ratified by the union membership on October 16, 2023 and subsequently by the Board of Directors of CFSGE on October 17, 2023.

Our goal has consistently been to reach a fair and equitable deal that respects and values our staff and the difficult work they do, while ensuring fiscal accountability and the future sustainability of the organization. We believe the agreement balances both of these objectives.

As always, if you have concerns about the safety of a child or young person, please continue to call our regular number at 1-888-753-8681.
