Disappointing and frustrating says Timmins-James Bay MPP Gilles Bisson about the Canadian Hearing Society’s decision to keep workers’ wages frozen.

Bisson says he has met with the workers to discuss ways to bring the two sides together.

The Union representing the workers on strike and the Canadian Hearing Society have yet to begin talks on a new bargaining agreement.

Bisson says after meeting with staffers he is even more frustrated with the current scenario.

He says his goal is to try and close the gap between the two sides in order to have them reach a fair agreement for both parties.
