CANTON – The clock is ticking as the collective bargaining agreements amongst the city and its security forces expire in two months.

Negotiations with the police and hearth unions, which stand for 287 men and females, have stalled.

“We have reached an deadlock with the (Canton Police Patrolmen’s Affiliation) union and therefore we’re heading forward with the subsequent action, which would be fact-locating,” explained Vivianne Duffrin, Canton’s assistant regulation director, who is negotiating on behalf of the city.

The unresolved concerns between the metropolis and the unions are submitted to a “third-occasion, neutral particular person,” who will look at the contracts and make recommendations, she claimed.
