Peel Region Division Labour Disruption – Statement from Emterra Environmental

November 16, 2016

Emterra Environmental is proud to serve the communities of Peel Region. That is why we are doing our utmost to continue providing the full range of solid waste collection services in a safe, reliable, and sustainable manner that our customers and residents have come to expect, even during the current labour disruption.

Our concern right now is for the safety of our employees and the communities of Peel Region and the impact the service disruptions may have on the environment.

At Emterra, every employee’s contribution is valued. We appreciate and recognize that they are an integral part of our success. We believe that this commitment is reflected in the compensation package that was presented.

It has also been our longstanding practice not to negotiate contract terms through the media out of due respect for our staff and the process.  That is why we are encouraging Labourers’ International Union of North America Local 183 leadership to return to the table so we can continue meaningful negotiations.

We remain committed to our customers and residents and will do our utmost to minimize the impact on them. Updates and information to the collection schedule will be provided on the Region of Peel’s website and on Twitter @regionofpeel.
