End of the lock-out at Radio-Canada

On Wednesday, 22 May, the union members at Radio Canade voted to accept the latest contract offer of the employer, and will be returning to work over the next few days.

Ubald Bernard, vice president of the Syndicat des Communications de Radio Canada and responsible for the negotiations says in a comment that the union has made some progress, and that the deal was the best they would be able to get at this moment.

The situation for temporary staff will be improved, but the main issues in the conflict concerning inequalities in treatment of men and women remain unresolved. An expert committee will be set up to discuss this question. (24/05/02)
