A review is currently underway to potential move to a not-for-profit model and that isn’t sitting well with CUPE workers.Regional VP for northern Ontario Henri Giroux and other CUPE members silently walked out of North Bay city council chambers on Monday.

He says they wanted to show the silence from the Cassellholme board is not acceptable. Giroux also claims the group is having closed door meetings and not letting the public know how the process is going.

Giroux says the board has never invited CUPE to the table.
