Firefighters’ union turns to Ministry of Labour

Guelph, Ont. - Guelph and the union representing its firefighters are asking the Ministry of Labour to appoint a conciliator to help them reach a contract settlement.

There have been seven negotiation meetings between the city and the Guelph Professional Firefighters' Association.

Two more meetings are scheduled for next month.

The city says it's hoping a ministry-appointed conciliator will help the two sides avoid going to arbitration.
