The union negotiating team representing workers with Labatt Brewery Company returned to the bargaining table with their employer today, a news release states.

The workers, members of the Newfoundland and Labrador Association of Public and Private Employees (NAPE), have been on strike since April 10.

Both parties have been working with a conciliator to return to the table since talks originally broke off in March.

“Our negotiating team is committed to reaching a fair deal at the table,” said NAPE President Carol Furlong.

      IMO, that comment is quite insensitive and inappropriate. But maybe that's just me.

      Insensitive and inappropriate? Given your corporate profit before the welfare of workers ideology, I thought it'd be highly appropriate for you.

      No Douggie, to post that response, instead of apology...or at least nothing's pretty safe to say you do not think, let alone think that.

      Townie: Glad to see you enjoy that glib, utterly meaningless (if not downright ironic) political slogan. It's obviously working very well.
