Lockout at Quilchena Golf and Country Club

RICHMOND—This morning at 7:15 a.m., management at Quilchena Golf and Country Club locked out its employees. The lockout affects 19 CUPE 4964 members who maintain and care for the grounds at the club and comes after only nine days of combined mediation and bargaining.

“We are extremely disappointed in the position management has taken throughout this round of negotiations. Rather than try to negotiate a solution, or continue to use the services of the mediator, the employer has chosen to lockout its employees and cut off negotiation talks,” said CUPE National Representative Sung Wong.  “We recognize that the employer is facing financial pressures which is why many of our proposals have focused on improved working conditions for members. This lockout is a strategy the employer is using to try and force members to accept a sub-par agreement and members are not prepared to do this.”

Wong adds the union is willing to negotiate with the employer at any time as employees are eager to end this labour dispute and return to work.

CUPE 4964 represents 19 workers who maintain and care for the grounds and golf course at the Quilchena Golf and Country Club in Richmond.
